Staying Close to Home: A Little Tokyo Coloring Book

Erica Rawles, Creative Strategist / Embedded Artist at Little Tokyo Service Center, made a coloring book to help entertain people currently sheltering at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The book features scenes of Little Tokyo past and present. LTSC is distributing the book and colored pencils to residents and seniors and is available in multiple languages to download and print at home:

“I hope this coloring book provides you with a moment to relax and unwind. Whether Little Tokyo is your home, or right now, your home away from home, I hope the illustrations on these pages give you a small sense of comfort in an otherwise uncertain time,” says Erica in her note from the artist page in the book.
