Recently completed for the recently opened Beagle pub/food place in Chorlton. I've not been up there yet, but the menu looks amazing, as does their beer list. Both these signs are 160cm wide, and I LOVED doing them. Been slowly amassing the right brushes (Handovers, and Wrights of Lymm) and a good range of One-Shot lettering enamels, then finally had this excuse to get stuck into a nice project.
Painted 'The Beagle' in a very traditional almost canal boat style, and then 'Old School Wild Style' (my sarcastic distain for 'spraycan art' and equally traditional grafitti style vandalism) in a more gypsy caravan / rustic fairground feel.
Had a warm up by painting our house number, jigsawed clumsily out of marine ply -
This is what I want to do from now on. Just letting you know, in case you have a drab shopfront, canal boat, vintage commercial vehicle or fairground ride that needs freshening up.
In Other news, Playing Out might be progressing towards it's eventual printed book state - I'm told January.
