- "French Fries on Everything," this week's wrap-around cover illustration
City Paper’s first ever Coloring Issue features the work of seven local artists, all illustrating a B&W coloring page with the theme “Pittsburgh With a Twist.”
- A detail from the cover illustration
On the outside of this week’s issue, you’ll find an illustration by Pat Lewis, which wraps around the entire front and back covers. Since first-time visitors to Pittsburgh often comment on our need to put French fries on everything from salads to Primanti’s sandwiches, we’ve placed French fries on literally everything: parking chair, construction worker, Edgar Snyder billboard and yes — just in time for the Penguins to reach the Stanley Cup Final — a bunch of guys watching a hockey game in a bar. (Go Pens!)
You can check out the rest of the illustrations below, but make sure you pick up this week’s issue to take part in our coloring contest. Pick your favorite page to color in, then show us your style on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, with #CPColoringIssue for the chance to win a CP prize pack that could include Stage AE tickets, restaurant gift cards, T-shirts and more. Happy coloring!

It's Raining Again
It’s almost Three Rivers Arts Festival time and you know what that means: rain! Only, in our “Pittsburgh-with-a-Twist” version, it’s raining one of Pittsburgh’s favorite foods. (If you’ve ever seen how many pierogies local churches make, this isn’t so far-fetched.)

The Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s famous extra-large statue has broken loose, and he’s taken beloved Pittsburgh icon Rick Sebak with him. But, oh no! They can’t fit inside the tunnel. How is anyone going to get to work with all that traffic now?

It’s hard to pass by a magazine rack these days without seeing a mandala coloring book, but our version is way more fun: Heinz ketchup bottles and the hypocycloids from the Steelers logo add to this quirky Pittsburgh-themed design.
