Breakups suck. Period. This is a well known fact — but there may be hope! Illustrator and comedian Nawwal Moustafa is behind the coloring book poised to help every broken-hearted lady through the darkest times.
Chin Up, DreamBoat! is the "creative companion for lesbian breakups" inspired by actual breakup stories, including the author's own personal experiences.
The book, which surpassed its target on Kickstarter in just hours, works through all the phases of getting your heart rocked: depression, denial, anger, making the mistake of texting them back, etc.
"I hope that by the end, they feel confident and mended if they need that," the Moustafa explained. "My whole artistic vibe is one of optimism. I want to offer people an opportunity to actively take part in moving on in a healthy way."
The next step is working to get the book printed, or as Moustafa puts it, "Getting the people what they want!" Below are a few exclusive pages provided to BuzzFeed.
With the initial success of Dreamboat, Moustafa already has a new theme planned for a second coloring book.
"I think coloring for adults are so popular because it's a true flow activity. You feel immersed and often very positive. We are allowed choices when we color, and typically, we know exactly what to do. As adults, that is rarely the case, so there is a certain feeling of expertise or mastery in coloring."
