Hi, my name is Viktor Baltus

In 2012 I started Chalkboard as the request for custom lettering on chalkboards in restaurants skyrocketed. What started out as drawing and teaching lettering for some of the biggest companies in the food and coffee industry has grown in to a more illustration based company because that is what I love to do most.

I’m fascinated by old packaging, printing techniques and history and love to visit antique shops and musea around the world. My main focus is late 15th century and the end of the 19th centruy. A weird combination you main say, but starting at the beginning of the printing press by Gutenberg and ending in the highlight of the modern engraving illustrations this makes the perfect combination. Things that are handmade, have a real heritage and fit right in a folklore setting are things that I love the most.
