    This is such a great site! We are doing a chalkboard project whenever we have #2 to update everyone what is going on. Can’t wait to get creative with it!

    wow…i loved these!
    do they put some spray on top of it when it is complete so that it does not all just rub off?
    thanks for the post :D

    If I did chalkboard lettering, mine would be like Rosemary Wannan’s—full of tape, straight guide lines, printed examples buckets, and multiple days. In other ways, extremely meticulous, seemingly moreso than Dana’s work.

    I love typography. It is one of those art forms that have never really risen to become as important as other art forms such as painting.

    These are amazing! How long do you usually spend on one piece? I wish my letters came out this nice. I’m going to have to do some practicing!

    Beautiful lettering– I loved seeing the process, especially for Nagging Doubt. That tends to be how I work, and it was nice to see such an outstanding example from a pro. I’m inspired to do more!
