Following the successful original, which Alternative Press called “real and glorious,” The Pop Punk Coloring Book: Volume 2 has been released! The book contains 40 pages split between coloring, activities, and information about the bands featured. This second edition features pop punk staples like Blink-182, All Time Low, Simple Plan, and Patent Pending alongside some emo and post-hardcore favorites. Who wouldn’t want to color pages dedicated to Fall Out Boy, Good Charlotte, Twenty One Pilots, and more?
“The first book was my demo – the first time I attempted to take my fine arts education and do something fun with it. I’m so lucky that it took off the way it did but I always knew that I could push myself to make something of an even higher quality,” shares artist Emily Becker. “This time around I really focused on detail, improving my drawings, and incorporating the lyrics that have stood the test of time with music fans.” When thinking of who to include in Volume 2, Becker kept an open mind in order to include more musicians in the fun. “I didn’t hold myself too accountable to strictly pop punk bands – the scene and its fanbase is becoming more eclectic and I wanted to branch out and include some bands that would not have necessarily fit the definition of pop punk that I used in the first book.”
