When chalkboard art is done well it’s so incredible and beautiful – like this amazing Christmas tree by illustrator Geninne Zlatkis.
Dana Tanamachi of Tanamachi Studio is doing amazing typographic work on chalkboards. This incredible piece is an installation in New York’s Andaz Hotel.
If the work in progress shot below interests you you’re going to love the series of time lapse films Dana has on her website. They show her creating various pieces from the blank chalkboards to the finished artwork. Incredible.
I’m so inspired by Dana’s passion for and understanding of vintage typography. She has become well known as a chalkboard artist and has taken on commissions from many high profile companies including Google, Yahoo!, Tommy Hilfiger, Bloomingdales and West Elm.
The poster below is for sale in her online shop – it’s a lovely sentiment and one that Dana lives by it seems.
