I bought myself a 16-colour crayon yesterday. I’m 20 at the moment but numbers just can’t kill the child in me. There’s no point using crayons in my course. I’m in engineering and everyone knows that when drafting our own house plan, it is illegal to have it colored. Figures of houses and its different parts and portions come bland.
Most of the time, when I am still awake during wee hours finishing some portion of the plan, I often ask myself, “If this could have been colored, will the drawing look better?” or “Will the drawing look more vivid?” or may be “Will the drawing be alive?” Until now, I can’t answer it. Still not sure at this moment, I never tried.
Maybe the drawing will look lousy. How would a crayon color the drawing film? Bits and pieces of crayons will not spread thoroughly on film. Maybe it will only crap up the whole plan. Or maybe I still don’t know.
Crayons, colours, and oh papers, we have so much of those in this world. Every country has enough paper, enough crayons to color them, and enough children to let those paper colored.
