If anyone is in Austin Tx there has been a great full wall vintage hand painted sign revealed due to a demolition on Congress between 4th and 5th. I was on a bus when I spotted it and didn't get the chance to flick it. If anyone is in the area and gets the chance to catch it, it would be worth the effort.

“Sara Marshall’s “Brand by Hand” lettering project transforms the logos of familiar brands into stylish calligraphy. The aim of the project, according to Marshall, is to reacquaint “the cold corporate world” with the “hand-treated and flowery nature of hand lettering.” “Brand by Hand” takes on Subway, FedEx, YouTube, Evian, Skype, Coca-Cola and a handful of other logos, keeping their colors and general layout intact, illustrating that even the most straightforward, risk-averse logos can be made pretty with a little effort.”

Definitely hot. Like the old flick of the sign painters too, always felt I had some cheating going on when I did an ad for someone but looks like things haven't changed a bit.

I remember a old oontzer with a big Muslim beard who would paint signs as a job.

 

I thought he was from down south.

 

Can't remember his name.

Nah pretty sure he's thinking of DaWood. Still not from the south though.
