I never thought I would really do this sort of thing, which is weird for me to admit. I always was interested, and even practiced, calligraphy. I follow a lot of typography and font sites. Good writing always stops me in my tracks and thoughts and immediately takes hold of my attention. It’s a fascinating thing for me.
I work at the bar in a Southern California movie theater, where they have chalkboards so that we may write whatever it is that we are selling or promoting. Eventually, I got into writing things on them. It literally was just writing, in neat handwriting, what kinds of things we were selling. Then all of a sudden, I did this. It was the most fun I have had at work. I used a lot of references for this guy, because this was the first kind of thing that I have done. Enjoy!
