A guy approached me at my friends’ house party, asking if I can draw something for him. When I agreed, he gave me his notebook and a fragment of rainbow trapped in a 4-color crayon. Below is the result.


I fell in love with the crazy and unpredictable process of drawing with the rainbow crayon. In the end, I let him keep the picture in exchange for a small piece of this magic. This was one of the best gifts I ever got in my life.

You know what’s best about my magic crayon? It has a personality on its own. Sometimes you think you’ll add some more yellow here and there and then suddenly… Magic! The whole thing turned navy blue. And still it looks awesome somehow. Drawing with the rainbow crayon is a unique kind of experience. Feels a bit like being both the creator and the creation at the same time.

There is also the second best thing… It’s impossible to create anything depressing with that. No matter how hard you try, you’ll never get any black out of the rainbow.


Two days from now, four more magic crayons are on their way (and I already plan to order some more just to give out to my friends), I have my own sketchbook (which has its own blog) and plans to collect as many drawings from friends, coworkers and strangers as I possibly can. Happiness always feels best when it’s shared.
