We love Jason Momoa! I mean, who doesn't? He's talented. He's super cool. He's funny. And he has arms the size of tree trunks! He's Aquaman after all.
Well, if you love Jason as much as we do, we have some exciting news for you! Artist, Maurizio Campidelli, has released a coloring book featuring the star as part of the "Crush and Color" series.
“Crush and Color: Jason Momoa. A Coloring Book of Fantasies With an Epic Dreamboat” is filled with 35 line art drawings of Jason. Some subtle and some over-the-top and quirky.

“While art therapy can foster these same benefits, it is more likely that a person engaging in art therapy has larger goals in mind, such as enhancing communication with self and/or others, processing trauma, facilitating decision-making, increasing self-awareness, developing coping skills, and understanding optimal and maladaptive functioning which might pertain to symptoms that tie to a life experience, relationship, loss or illness,” Brandoff said.
“Another metaphor could be the distinction between a) engaging in stretching at home and b) going to a chiropractor. They may seem similar in approach and goal (e.g. optimal physical functioning), and while stretching at home can have an enormous benefit and be highly recommended, if you have a pinched nerve, just stretching on your own at home may not effectively address that issue. Another example: when I have a headache, I don’t immediately go to a neurologist. I might start with taking Ibuprofen, but there are some headaches that simple over-the-counter medication will not properly treat.”
“On the marketing end, there are so many different kinds of coloring books out there. Ones that are funny, clever, adorable, and beautiful. These play into our personalities, interests, and things that bring us joy. There are coloring books that play into trending phenomenon like mindfulness, and books that mimic famous works of fine art. There are books that cater to animal lovers, or unicorn lovers, and I even saw your article of the Jason Momoa coloring book.”
She continued, “My colleague has a book with elaborate and ornate profanity words, and a friend had a book dedicated to her fight with cancer. There seem to be books that play to all interests, which make good gifts and gimmicks, and like everything else in our culture, if it’s sold to us well, it’s likely to do well.”
“I think the other issue is nostalgia, which may be real or perceived. Some people loved coloring as children, or have memories of escaping into coloring pages, the clear definition of boundaries, and the freedom to maintain or to break those boundaries at will without consequences from the world or others. Coloring books allow for that freedom,” she said.
“For folks who didn’t love coloring as children, or don’t have fond memories of escaping to coloring books, it might feel like a lost opportunity that they now get to visit. There is a perceived nostalgia in connecting with activities that we think that children do or should enjoy. We get to be childlike or more spontaneous, whimsical, and in the moment when we color, which is contrary to what is often expected in adulting.”
