Digital Rain

Digital Rain

In the dark of downtown, on a vacant street, the city's lights bounce off each raindrop to create an array of tiny light bulbs levitating in mid-air. Their reflection off the streets below create an endless river of purples and blues.

I close my eyes, and when I open them I find this little scene was all but a dream; instead, a close-up of an old pair of jeans.

Pantone Color of The Year (Emerald)

This was announced a while back, but I wanted to include it on The Sketchpad for archival sake.
Pantone Color of The Year (Emerald)


Color of the Year for 2012: Tangerine Tango

Color of the Year for 2012: Tangerine Tango
Dec. 8, 2012

2012's shade, PANTONE® 17-1463 Tangerine Tango, is a reddish orange shade, described by the brand as "vivacious" and "enticing."

In this image courtesy of Pantone, the color swatch for Pantone's Tangerine Tango is shown. The world doesn't need more gray, and the blues are covered, too. What consumer products need is a jolt, a shot of energy and boldness, all of which comes from Tangerine Tango, the reddish-orange hue that Pantone has picked as its top color for 2012.
