  24. Learning graphic editing software is even pricier. Chalkboard is a popular and always interesting graphic style that is often used in food and drink industry, for apparel, even company branding. There are many kinds of a chalkboard art – vintage, modern, grunge, black/white, color chalk, retro-hipster, art deco, etc. Any chalkboard style is interesting and attracting if done right – but don’t get your chalk artwork from someone who will butcher it, use cheap fonts and make it look cheezy. There are many online portals, forums and galleries dedicated to this “art phenomenon” that came back some 10 years ago and is here to stay for a long haul. You can also check many pinterest tags, websites like chalkboardstyle.com, etc. It’s easy to find good chalkboard artwork online.
