Idle fun raises money…

…for UNICEF if you purchase a colour. Since my working name is Forbidden Colour I thought it would be entertaining to "own" the two colours (here and here). Just like having a star named after you – the universe doesn't care about the star's name – the world of multi-million colour choices has no inkling that one is "owned" by you! And the irony, of course – I came up with my work name to represent the forbidden colours of Heian-era Japan, a period when the emperor did in fact "own" these colours and others were forbidden to wear them. I just thought I'd free them for my or others' design use. Now I own them.
