I collaborated with designer and fellow calligrapher, Alicia Marquez to create a fun chalk art piece for Chalk Howard Street this summer. We both love the style of sign-painting done in Buenos Aires, Argentina, called fileteado porteño, and it inspired our design and colors.
Working in 94ºF weather, we spent 4 hours drawing on the asphalt street. It was our first time with this medium and we love the results. Hard work, and so temporary, even the wind would blow the chalk away. It all disappeared when rain came later in the day.
Remember to Find Your Fire!
