So excited for Faythe Levine to speak at Design Week Portland and I am also excited for her new book from Princeton!
Grocery store paper signs
“You don’t outline a sign painter’s letter and then fill it in with a Q-tip—that isn’t really sign painting. You use the appropriate size brush and do it in three strokes. Who can do that? My computer can’t.” —John Downer, sign painter
From Sign Painters, available October 2012.
If Faythe’s speaking engagement ends up on YouTube or Vimeo at some point, I will watch and listen with rapt attention. Ever since I found out about the Sign Painter Movie project, I’ve eagerly awaited blog posts about their progress. The fact that a book is coming out is icing on the cake. Sign painting makes me as happy as a gang of puppies.
