I try to do my small part to eliminate stereotypes. Any stereotypes, but the one I’m most familiar with is gender.

One thing that is often talked about is the colors. Boys get blue and girls get pink. There is a strict division along gender lines in everything you can find in a store today.

One thing that blogs I follow (like Pigtail Pals) often say is that colors are for everyone. For instance, my son has pink shoe laces. If we wanted to reinforce these gender stereotypes, we might deter him from them.

But, colors are for everyone.

I really do believe that.

Except.

As an artist, the truth is that all the colors are for me.

And some days it’s perfectly okay to keep all the colors for yourself.
