Chris built me a very large chalkboard (3’x5’6″) in our laundry room so I would have a large canvas for revolving art–drawing, painting, etc. is a pretty big passion of mine.  Every month I will be doing a new drawing.  Even if October is almost over, I didn’t want the chance to pass me by to draw something a little spooky:

What do you think?

    ARE you kidding me????? This is incredible.

  2. It is REALLY smooth. I don’t know the type of wood that he used for the front, but it is a very, thin, veneer type thing. The hardest part is definitely drawing large–especially in such a small space. I couldn’t really stand back and see where I was very easily. I am sure it will get easier with practice and time. :)

  3. Wow Jules! Is it pretty smooth? Easy to draw on?

  4. Meagan says:

    speechless!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Wow! You are so talented! I would pay money to see this in a museum. Just sayin’.

    Good job, Chris!

  8. Kristine says:
