Inspired: Writing Rainbows

Something cheery for your Monday morning! This amazing typewriter types color instead of letters, creating amazing paintings. What an incredible way to create art...and how can I get one?

“What a lovely new use for an old gadget. Washington-based painter Tyree Callahan has modified a traditional typewriter and turned it into a painting machine, or “Chromatic Typewriter”. Callahan submitted the beautiful typewriter as part of the 2012 West Prize competition, an annual art prize that’s determined by popular vote. The keys on the vintage 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter have each been replaced with a different pad of color to give some rather interesting results!” - wetheurban
