Evolution of Color
A new box of crayons might be my favorite thing in the entire world. The smell, the sharpness of the tips, all of that possibility and color – well, to me it’s just heaven.
When I saw this chart of the evolution of crayon colors well, I just went bonkers for that too.
To me, what is amazing is how consistent their color choices have been. From very simply to giant boxes of 300 crayons, the colors have all stayed in the same vein. At least I know that the original colors would have gotten the job done. I found this graphic and the idea for this post here.
I had a babysitter once who we loved to death. Weirdly enough, she had albinism, which means that even though she lived 3 doors down she had to carry a black umbrella just to walk to our house. That weird little tidbit aside, what changed my life was when she taught us to color inside the lines. First, you outlined the area that was to be whatever color with that color, and then you filled it in. It was a revelation.
Do you have any crayon-centric favorite memories?
