Adult coloring books have quickly emerged as a popular new trend. They made national headlines last year after four of them reached the top 10 best-selling books list on amazon.com.

Last year we discovered a Lakewood neighbor who is capitalizing on the trend with an adult coloring book of his own.

Walter Hofheinz is an East Dallas attorney, and he’s been making mandalas — geometric circles comprised by lines, dots, swirls and other designs — for at least 20 years.

A friend taught him how to make them, and it quickly became a favorite pastime.

“I draw them when I’m stuck in meetings,” Hofheinz told us. “It’s a really socially acceptable thing to do. You can pull out all your pens and do something useful while people are talking.”

Well if you read our story from last year, bought one of his coloring books and then quickly exhausted it, you’re in luck. Hofheinz just released a second volume.

This volume contains 60 three-inch mandalas, plus space to practice drawing your own mandalas and quotes printed beneath many of the designs. The book is listed on Amazon.com and can be easily found by searching “Walter Hofheinz 2” or click here.
