Hand lettering Chalk Wall Mural

I was approached by Transwestern to create a unique art installation for one of their buildings white-box projects—an available real estate space they show potential clients. This was my first ever large scale chalk lettering project standing at 3’ x 9’. The Client provided the quote, and the design layout was created by me.

Life-Size

It was a great challenge to tackle a sign taller than me! I learned a lot from this process about technique, materials, and tools to complete the job.

Details

The initial artwork was designed on the computer to lay out the composition. I start by marking measuring the wall and marking it and sketching the concept out with chalk. I went over the final piece using liquid chalk pens, and left some dusty aspects to the piece to add character.
