Cerebro round 2: colors colors and more colors

Apple green is by far my favorite.

That’s right, cerebro is back! This time in color. I’m taking these babies to the Clack in Cologne keyboard meetup tomorrow, the ones that don’t sell there will go on the webshop. I am very curious to see which colorways will turn out to be most popular. It’s always difficult to decide which colors to go for; do I make what I think looks beautiful? Or do I try to make keycaps that match existing keyset colorways? I decided to go with a bit of both.

Cerebro in the GMK Calm Depths colorway

In the beginning I tried staying away from what most artisan keycap makers are doing, which is creating their magnum opus and then reiterating endlessly in the plethora of keyset colorways. After getting my first GMK set, however, I decided to try to mimic the colors and create a cerebro keycap in the same colorway. This turned out to be a very fun and satisfying challenge and led me to wonder if I could create a more appealing colored keycap. While I see the appeal, ease and also the opportunities that colorways present, I don’t think I will make this a habit. I have many other keycap ideas in mind that I want to make a reality and only so much time to make them happen!

The light blue ones remind me of Delfts Blauw pottery.
