Harold and the Purple Crayon by sweetgreychaos Harold and the Purple Crayon by sweetgreychaos
Every kid wanted to be Harold with his purple crayon. I was no exception, though I probably would've picked up a red crayon and headed off on my way.

In so many ways, this was wonderful to do, and so much fun. However... Harold is much harder to paint/draws than he looks. And the urge to make things more precise was killin' me... but I had to remind myself, come on Grey. It's a kid with a crayon. Be a little messy. :heart:






:bulletpurple: Time: Other People's Money, up until the proposal

You're welcome!
It used to be one of my favorites. Whenever I find it lying around, I pick it up to read again, even though I should be past those days. You did a really good job capturing the innocence and playfulnesss of the story.

oooh I loved Harold when I was younger :D (although I wanted to use a green crayon instead haha)

PS - That looks like a nasty scar on your neck D: Hope it just looks worse then it was

Thank you! (Ha, I felt the same way, except w/ a red crayon.) :heart:

The scars on my neck/chest are remnants of my cancer treatment. So although I don't know if I can say they look worse than they were... I'm 5 years out from treatment and doing well, so I suppose they're battle scars well won. :D :heart:

Thank you! And very, very rarely- usually only at a special show or fair. Most of the art you see in the gallery has just been for art purposes- paint, take pictures, and clean off.
