As part of my "Project365" I wanted to practice lettering on the enormous 8ft tall by 30ft wide public chalkboard outside the COOR building of ASU. So, every Saturday morning, I woke up at 5am to practice my lettering by writing some inspirational and/or motivational quotes and phrases for the students to see the following Monday when they returned to class. Each piece took around 5-7 hours to complete and were occasionally destroyed a just few hours after completion (since it is in fact a public chalkboard for all to use). I had a lot of people ask me, "Don't you get upset when people erase your work that you spend hours on?" My response is, not really because it just gives me a reason to create another piece.

In this day and age, especially with the economy the way it is, times are tough. With that, I wanted to use my skill set to instill motivation and inspiration in people's days by writing some motivational quotes and phrases on a public 8ft tall by 15ft wide chalkboard. I drew a new motivational piece on that board every Saturday for almost an entire year to brighten up the days of those that might be struggling, like my family once did. From this personal project, I just wanted to help people. I wanted to spread these positive messages because I feel sometimes with all the burdens "life" brings, a little positivity is needed in order
to push through and make it a better day.
