Beautiful Chalk Lettering by the Renowned Dana Tanamachi

Dana Tanamachi is our all time favorite custom lettering artist and could quite easily be yours. What makes her creations even more beautiful is the fact that they are created with chalk and whilst this is quite an unusual choice of medium to work with, it has provided her with an edge over the competition and her work with a gorgeous authentic touch. Within this article I have compiled a few of her, in my opinion, best pieces along with some insightful time-lapse videos at the end.
