Dana Tanamichi

Chalk is an interesting medium. The first word that pops into my head is “temporary.” And when I think of chalk I imagine kids splayed out on the sidewalk on a warm summer day, their dreams and imaginations spilling out in a chalky mess. But what happens when you take such a simple tool and bring a little craft to it? You’d get something like the work of Dana Tanamichi. Dana does these large-scale typography drawings that are simply stunning, harkening back to a time of sign painters creating advertisements on the sides of buildings.
