While visiting NYC for vacation, we spotted Pirasta at a bookstore. I know a bookstore. Don't you miss chilling out at a bookstore? Well, UPS has delivered my very first Pirasta order. 

Yay, new project. For your enjoyment, I'll share with you a few opening box pictures and then I'll share my initial thoughts. 

Quick summary of the Let's Color America poster in one word? It's awesomelicious.

such a beautiful box..it seemed worth holding onto.

The box is 63 long. It came in blue, black and white color. The prints outside the box - funny illustrations, meet the artist story and the specs. 

cost: $32

hooray Niagara! and Meet the artist

Wow! first thing came in mind, how long will it take me to finish? It so huge. I guess it might take me six months. I suppose I can throw a coloring party. An enjoyment for families and friends too.

now it's time to grab a color pen and color away.

Wait! What sort of color pen and pencil should I use? Can regular crayon work? We bought Stampables markers in SFMOMA. So far so good. But they aren't very good for detail coloring, so more to come which color pen to use?

Do they have other design? Yes. Check out Pirasta website for other designs - The BIG Apple, Food Fight! and Funny Farm.

Here is the good news, Pirasta has made to the 2015 Matha Stewart America Made finalist. If you like their idea, please support them by cast in your vote.

Do you have a Pirasta poster? If yes, please share what type of color pen or pencil do you use? Share with us on the comments section.
