... eventually, no matter what, you've got to erase it.
Mr. Han believes that being beholden to a final, lasting product means accepting limitations on his work. Chalk is therefore a perfect medium for whisking a drawing away and making room for the next process of discovery.
Many would uphold Peter Han's focus on his creative journey –as opposed to his end product –as a symbol of true artistic spirit; it is therefore all the more interesting to hear him explain that he prefers to refer to himself as a designer, not an artist. Regardless of his title of choice, his mindset is one with which every artist should engage: when the ephemeral nature of chalk is practical, not problematic, one is free to let go and take risks with one's ideas.
Luckily for those unfamiliar with Peter Han and his dynamic sketching, the sleek twist of Pardon My Dust, a short film directed by Adriel de la Torre, is that at least a handful of the chalkboard worlds that he nonchalantly erases live on.
