Rainbow!: The Evolution Of Crayola Colors

January 20, 2010


I remember when I was growing up I only had one crayon color: stick. You had to really bear down on the paper, but it was kind of a brownish-green. Sometimes more brown, sometimes more green, but always ready to poke your eye out. Maybe your parents bought you things though, maybe you had a plethora of colors, which is even more likely if you were born in the past ten or fifteen years. Which, according to a quick calculation, would make you around 10 to 15. My target demographic. I'm hip, I know what's up with you guys. So, you cats wanna slam some pogs or what? Yeah? Cool, I'll Rollerblade right over.
