A couple of Chalkboard Signs

Now i know that the majority of you guys on here are traditional sign-writers (i.e brush and oils) and think that guys like me ( a chalkboard sign writer) cheat cos we use posca pens (i.e chisled edges)......but i thought i`d share some of my work and see what you guys think (good or bad please)

Nice work Chris.
most on the boards would love to have a bit of your talent,
the traditional sign writers are few and far between,
yes we do have a fair share but not in the majority.

Thanks for sharing your work

Well done Chris, nice work.

I started as a ticket/ poster writer ie, one stroke brushes and plaka paint but also used chisel tipped markers, still do the occasional poster but very few and far between.

No, a dry town not a dry state! hahaha heaven forfend!
I am not sure why they are illegal
(another sign guy told me about this when I had a recent inquiry for them)
Something about they have been banned by the Dept of Health.
Not the marker kind, the chalk kind.
