Hand painted signs on recycled wood

This all started through the necessity of making large signs for a concert hall (Gigors Electric Sound-System) and festival (The Freakshow) here.
I really enjoyed working with wood, metal, electricity and getting my hand dirty rather than sitting in front of a screen all day.
Having spent over 20 years working with Illustrator and Photoshop, I'm very strict about not using them now. The Victorians managed without and they had some of the most amazing sign writers. Everything's done by hand, on paper and then on wood. Every sign is unique. And pretty much all the wood is salvaged from furniture workshops who'd otherwise burn it.
By buying my work, you're getting a completely unique object which will cheer you up every time you look at it and keeps me out of trouble ;-)
Cheers,
Jill

    After over 20 years of graphic design sitting at a computer, I decided to start doing things by hand. I started with workshops with the mighty Mike Meyer and am always learning. I'm currently studying traditional fairground decoration techniques.
