January's Colorway: "Mister Mysterious"
Mister Mysterious started out as drawing on a scrap of paper by a young friend. The drawing's imagery was so vivid, I was sure it needed to inspire a colorway. But which colors?
"You must have black," advised my young friend's mother.
"Hmm, yes" said I. "And purple"
"Purple? Are you sure?"
"Yes I am. His cape is purple. Hmm, how about red?"
"Yes, red is very mysterious." But what else? Neon Green? Too zowie. Navy? Too repetitive after purple. Needed something else, but nothing seemed mysterious enough
What to do.
