- Finding some old sign work that i hand painted from around 1994. This 8 foot sign was created with 1 shot enamels and smiths cream ,the sword was made of Aluminium and the wood handle i turned on a lathe. The Lettering is hand jigsawed and gilded. The surround was hand carved and oil gilded also. Painting the pictorial was fun especially the horse. The banner/ scroll at the base was made of plastic which i formed into shape by using a heat gun and then painted. Fun project. #camelot #art #graphicdesign #horses #type #1994 #signwriting #signage #handcrafted #handlettering #craftsmanship

- This 54 inch wide gilded glass sign was made 17 years ago for a Letterhead meet in Leicester, UK . All the deep embossing and etching was created first and then gilding and hand painting afterwards . All the work was then protected with sericol ink to protect the enamels from the aggressive chemical silvering and also the blue gun metal mirror finish that i was using at that time. The silver, copper, gold (Angelgild) and blue mirror finishes that can be created using different chemicals is a fascinating process within the glass industry. It's good to see that these techniques are making a resurgence across our large cottage industry with craftsmen and women willing to share these almost lost beautiful arts. #mirror #handmade #goldleaf #signpainter #signwriter #typography #type #graphicdesign #art #silvered #glass #signporn #angelgilded #lostart #craftsmanship

- This little glass sign was hand painted on the back of the glass , it was made in 2006 while i was giving a gilding workshop to @gary_godby who at the time was working for Disney in Florida. The panel was made over 7 days and combines many old fashioned techniques that were used over one hundred years ago. Fun little project and always great to reference the incredible work and style of the Czech artist Alphonse Mucha.

- After sharing a few drawings this past few days of the album cover that i made in 2012 i thought i would share this film out with you. The footage shows how John and I came to a finished piece of artwork for his album cover Born and Raised working back and fourth over several months over Skype. It was such a fun project to work on @johnmayer Thanks for the interest and Enjoy the film everyone! https://vimeo.com/60647216 #jm #album cover #art #music #johnmayer #graphicdesign #handmade #design #typography #type #nashville #bornandraised
