Edwin Binney and C. Harold Smith founded the company that would go on to create Crayola on March 31, 1885. That makes this National Crayon Day.
Even though it'd be almost two decades before they produced what you'd recognize as a modern crayon, over 130+ years and an acquisition by relative GoComics neighbor Hallmark, they effectively popularized the things and made them a formative artistic tool among kids. Can you imagine your childhood without them? Maybe you can if you were born with an iPad in your hand. If so, we imagine you were a pretty buff baby. I mean, they're light but not that light.
This March 31, we honor the Crayola crew's contributions to training scores of generations of young artists in color theory. We're sure you've got several apps available for buff babies, too.
Read on for all the crayon comics you can fit in a golden cardboard box.
