Confidence at the Chalkboard

> You know how some people are intimidated to write on a chalkboard? Their writing gets larger or smaller as they begin to write, or they start writing up or downhill? I've always done okay at the board—my writing stays pretty steady, and I'm right-handed, so I don't have a problem smearing it as I go along. 
> I ran across this typographic designer, Dana Tanamachi, who brings a whole new level of inadequacy for anyone like me who once felt confidence with chalk. She works for Louise Fili (big surprise, a typographic design legend!) 
> If I could even do with a pencil what she does with chalk on a chalkboard, well, let's say the term "big head" would be an understatement. I am SO in awe. She's got a web site with lots of amazing samples of her work including a few time-lapse videos, do yourself a favor and take a look.
