Where is our check book? What’s the conversion rate from euros? What is the fastest way to get our grubby mitts on a Ryan Gosling coloring book? A complete genius by the name of Mel Elliot came up with the book, entitled Colour Me Good: Ryan Gosling, which features page after page of blank Gosling pictures for you to color to your heart’s content. Just the idea of it gives us the same sense of calm joy we had when we first found out about wingsuits, or learned that Taco Bell is using Doritos for taco shells. The book retails for approximately $12, which means Mel Elliot is about to earn…$12 billion dollars.
We hope Ryan sees all our frantic scribbling as a compliment, especially since no one is going to see it unless they’re staring at our refrigerator door. We are already planning our color scheme for Ryan’s dog George and his Blue Valentine costar Michelle Williams, but we can only pray Mel Elliot included our favorite Gosling images in his book. If not, we’ll just have to buy the sequel. Note: is it called a sequel if it’s just another coloring book?
It’s going to take some work to get the stubble just right.
And the sneer.
We’re assuming the coloring book has a warning against cuteness-induced heart attacks, because clearly it needs it.
With the right crayon selection, these photos could go in the Louvre.
Or the Met.
Or be etched on a golden record and sent into space. That way if aliens ever find it (and learn how to play a record), they will know of our greatest achievement: Ryan Gosling.
And this one…well, you can just color his hair brown. These are almost better than a photo!
