500 reasons to draw
September 6, 2009
some people belong to a wine of the month club, i would belong to the colored pencil of the month. that is the idea behind 500 colored pencils, a company that sends you 25 colors a month for 20 months. it wants to allow time to appreciate every color (each with a clever little name) and build up your palate each month.
it reminds me of getting the gigantic box of crayola crayons when you were little, taking each color out, examining it, reading the name, using it, then putting it back into its place.
although this isn’t exactly a cheap monthly club to belong to ($33 a month) it may be worth it to be inspired and reminded of the beauty of color every month.
