As the perpetual lockdown drags on and the view from our window begins to show signs of Spring arriving the current restrictions can down hearten even the most optimistic of campers.
Homeschooling has become a running battle fought across the kitchen table and date nights have reverted to shared bowls of pasta from the comfort of the sofa.
Enter the Nordic Outdoor Colouring Book.
In a bid to save the nation from the endless boredom we are all subject to we have teamed up with Edinburgh based artist Hatti Voar to do something a little fun to get the whole family together and envisaging that next adventure.
Hatti has recreated some of our favourite images from some of our favourite brands to create a downloadable colouring book for all lovers of the outdoors, Scandinavian kit and even those indoor types who just love colouring.
In celebration of the outdoors returning (one day) and these great illustrations we are offering some prizes up for the most meticulous line abiders. We have One Fjallraven Kanken Art rucksack and Five Kanken Pen Cases up for grabs to our favourite submissions.
The beauty of this competition is the total lack of rules – whether you want to print the sheet and attack it with a Sharpie or use an i-pad to create a digital masterpiece. We’re accepting Jackson Pollock inspired modern interpretations along with Crayola creations - so think outside the box. You can dowload the full colouring book at the below link or alternatively save each image to your computer.
We can’t wait to get outdoors later this year but hopefully this is a little something to help break the lockdown monotony. Many thanks to Hatti for getting on board and being such a sport – you can find out more about her art here and see her full Instagram here.
