But to make things more interesting, Jonsi and Alex want their fans to put on their game faces in a virtual coloring competition that will win one lucky person an autographed 'Riceboy Sleeps' box set and other signed knickknacks, such as a tote, a poster and a physical copy of the coloring book.
Before you pick up the old Burnt Sienna Crayola and go all Picasso on your computer screen, there are some helpful guidelines for the virtual competition:
1. Print out your favorite picture from Jónsi and Alex's coloring book.
2. Color in the picture with whatever coloring tools you like (physically or digitally). Feel free to color outside the lines -- originality and imagination is encouraged.
3. Scan in the colored-in picture and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your full name in the e-mail and keep attachments under 5MB.
This takes the annual pumpkin-drawing tradition at the local grocery store to the next level. Apart from the aforementioned treats, the winner and five runners-up will receive a copy of the couple's 'Rain Down My Favorite Songs' mixtape. The eclectic mix, sporting cover art from the coloring book, features music from Billie Holiday, Django Reinhardt and even Audrey Hepburn's take on 'Moon River' to match the era's murals.
