Convention Week Coloring Contest Allows Bostonians to select Bush's true colors for themselves
23 Jul 2004
The Boston Phoenix, Garrett County Press and Barbara's Bookstore are holding an old fashioned coloring contest based on a page from The George W. Bush Coloring Book. The winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to Barbara's Bestsellers and a copy of the coloring Book.
BOSTON, MA — The people of Boston are invited to join in an old fashioned coloring contest based on the book that Ward Harkavy, writer for the NY Village Voice recently called "Witty" in his Bush Beat. The contest features a page from the George W. Bush Coloring Book. Those who wish to enter the convention week coloring contest can obtain rules and a copy of the illustration in The Boston Phoenix, color it with all the creativity they can muster, and deliver it to Barbara's Bestsellers (inside the train station) located at 2 South Station, Boston by July 29th, 2004. The winner will be awarded a $50 gift certificate from Barbara's Booksellers along with a copy of the George W. Bush Coloring Book. Barbara's can be reached at 617-443-0060.

The George W. Bush Coloring Book draws from the imaginative words President Bush has uttered over the years, illustrating them in the form of a coloring book and allowing readers to select the Bush administration's true colors for themselves. The book features on-the-record quotes such as "It's amazing I won. I was running against peace, prosperity and incumbency," and "I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully." In his review, Vincent Jones of describes Illustrator and veteran book designer Karen Ocker as someone who has the "the artistic chops to translate the words of our President into pictures that convey the full effect of his intellectual mediocrity" and goes on to state that [Ocker] "proves that a picture is worth a thousand words in The George W. Bush Coloring Book." Doug MacCash, Art Critic of the Times-Picayune describes Ocker's illustrations as "crisp, nicely composed and chock full of smart-aleck visual details". The information-packed, two-page essay on President Bush by Joley Wood is described by Vincent Jones' review as "a highly informative historical footnote" in which Joley Wood "sums up the lion's share of why Bush should not be elected in the fall. He does away with the niceties and narrows in on the core issues that have given rise to the 'anybody but Bush' phenomenon."
