Around this time last year, I discovered hand lettering on chalkboards around Folk for the NASAD accreditation show. I found these pieces to be particularly inspiring and wanted to learn how to create something similar. Having absolutely no experience with hand lettering I knew that this was going to be a long process. I tasked myself with creating 100 small pieces in varying styles to teach myself hand lettering. I was inspired to end the project with a large chalkboard mural about the school of art to then be donated to the school when the project is complete. The reason I chose to give the board back to the school is that I wish to see more artwork hanging in the halls. To bring hand lettering into the modern era of technology visitors to the exhibition can download the Layar App and hold it up to the board to view a time-lapse of the mural being drawn.
