Chalk and cream

It’s no secret that I have a love affair with letters. This affair was taken to new heights with a recent commision.

A friend called and asked me, if I could write some fancy letters on a chalkboard menu for one of his clients. It was a no brainer, I agreed even though I have never done something like this before  and learned mad loads of things. Firstly theres no undo, your arm needs constant blood flow and projectors don’t work when the son is blazing at 8am. Anyway after loads of trips up and down a four step ladder, I managed to get it all together and the client was happy. Sometimes the most challenging jobs can be the most rewarding. Especially when you have no feeling in your drawing hand.
