I like these fonts because I feel like when fonts are serif they look more sophisticated. I especially like the Los Angles one because it looks very fancy. I also like the spacing between the Dallas font.
This is a great idea for any sort of DIY artwork: trace a simple graphic onto three canvases, and paint. So much more esthetically pleasing than if you were to just trace and paint onto one canvas. Plus i love the whale idea for a little boy room :)
