Maybe you’ll like this video, it’s about artist Stephen Powers. Powers borrows the beautiful hand-lettering techniques from an era when billboards were painted onto the sides of buildings instead of pasted on billboards, but instead of urging you to BUY THIS, his work broadcasts encouraging and lovely sentiments.  In this video, Powers talks about his work and and a project to paint a mural at each landing of an ordinary stairwell.  It’s a smart way to make this often used and often overlooked circulation space a more enjoyable experience.
