During the time at my first agency, we had a large 9×12’ chalk wall that was used to display our in-house talent to visiting clients. For a good portion of a year, I had the opportunity of adding personal hand-drawn murals while in between client projects. This mural in particular took less than half a day’s work from initial concept completion to the large-scale installment. My inspiration behind the piece was to not only create something that looked aesthetically pleasing but also served as a motivational reminder. The medium of chalk is also symbolic in it being impermanent. So being true to the quote itself in contrast to the medium, make a life worth living by creating it.
