Written and illustrated by Daniel Edmondson
Produced by an amputee, this 30-page coloring book features adaptive and non-adaptive skateboarders and skateboarding scenes. The illustrator is a professional adaptive skateboarder who volunteers in his community by hosting adaptive skate clinics and raising awareness of the sport.
Edmondson turned to drawing as a coping mechanism when he was recovering from the amputation of both his legs during a Minnesota winter. Today, he is an advocate for art therapy programs, which he believes can help amputees deal with the loss of a limb. He encourages coloring outside the lines.
