Love Letters for Hamilton Type.

When the good people at Mama’s Sauce in Orlando Florida found out that the Hamilton Type Museum were being forced to relocate, they did something extraordinary. They culled the talents of some extremely skilled designers to help raise money for the Hamilton move. The video below tells the story of who what and why. The video is worth watching in its own right. The cause makes it even better.

Dana Tanamachi’s Hand Drawn Chalk Signs.

When I was going through art school, one medium that always kicked my butt were pastels. I got chalk dust on everything , smeared it smudged it, got it on the side of my hand which always got transferred to my cloths or another part of the drawing. So when I see someone who has great command of chalk as a medium, I get all warm and fuzzy.

Dana Tanamachi is graphic designer that lives and works in Brooklyn New York. Part of what she does is create custom hand lettered signs with chalk, and they are really extraordinary. When I first saw images of her work I thought that she was doing scratch board, then I saw the works with subtle textures, and tonal variations.
