Oh my, how time does fly. I have not posted since before IAMPETH...more on that later...but I have found a new way to keep my hand in the lettering world and fulfill some of my work duties at the same time.
At the school where I work, the old easel we used to post notices finally gave up the ghost and could barely stand. Happily, I found this "weatherized Oak Street A-Frame Sidewalk Sign" from billyBoards, intended for use with (also weatherproof) Zig Posterman markers. They withstand water, i.e. rain, and come off with Windex.
It's amazing, after a long day in the office, how much I unwind while sketching and chalking these messages! It's become a (usually) Friday afternoon ritual.
