Hey!  I’m Michael McManus, co-founder of M2 Photo & Stagger Films and I make chalk art. Once I finish a piece, I photograph it, erase it, and start another one.

In January 2015 I was with my daughters at a church where they took piano lessons.  While one was taking their lesson, I’d wait with the other in a classroom.  One day, I decided to do a quick drawing on the chalkboard and take a picture of my one daughter in front if it.  We had fun so from that point on, each week I’d make a drawing.

Eventually, we created a small chalkboard wall in our kitchen.  Then I moved on to a bigger wall to work with.  This changed my drawings because it gave me more than 45 minutes to do a drawing and allowed me to work on a drawing for as long as I want.  Some drawings take as little as a few hours and some up to 100+.

Oh and this portrait of me?  Taken by my daughter when she was 8.  =)
