Chalk is an interesting medium. The first word that pops into my head is “temporary.” And when I think of chalk I imagine kids splayed out on the sidewalk on a warm summer day, their dreams and imaginations spilling out in a chalky mess. But what happens when you take such a simple tool and bring a little craft to it? You’d get something like the work of Dana Tanamichi. Dana does these large scale typography drawings that are simply stunning, harkening back to a time of sign painters creating advertisements on the sides of buildings. Of course, she works for Louise Fili, which makes total sense when you look at what she does because she does it so well.
