Ahhh, the fresh smell of waxy crayons in the morning. Chunky lines. Wax remnants everywhere. Innocence. Crayola.

I found this chart yesterday and I thought it was nifty. It shows the visual transformation from Crayola's original 8 colors in 1903, the 120 different colors now.

I like how they stayed the same for just over 30 years, then the rapidly started breaking off into different hues. The site I found it on was ultra nerdy and calculated that the colors double every 28 years--maning by 2050 there will be 330 colors.

Better get a bigger box.
