Who doesn’t want a 24kt Gold Tina Belcher hanging up in their apartment This one was a gift the bffs @mmanatee. I’m doing everything in my power to leave a trail of shiny and sparkly Belchers in my wake. So far, so good.
Printing handouts! Stoked for the Sign Painting workshop with @copenhagensigns 👍 See you there tomorrow!
Paint has an advantage over a sticker that it’s more solid and applying a design that way is a real human-powered craft. I’m able to paint based on pictures or repaint your logo on a wall, if that’s what you’re after. Paint is more waterproof than a sticker and lasts longer. It also ages with style, in contrary to a sticker that peels off. Go for paint. #alwayshandpaint #blackboardwhistler
Didn’t know what I wanted to paint yesterday @pittsburghletteringclub then remembered this older guy in my neighborhood last week who was blasting Sade’s “Smooth Operator” at 11 at night on his home stereo while he chilled out on his front porch. I’m not even mad! By the way, check out the Smooth Operator extended version on YouTube for an awesome bonus instrumental after the original. #1shotpaint #alwayshandpaint #lettering #sade #smoothoperator
One more, that’ll be hanging next to the Rotating Taps board. I really enjoyed the process of creating these signs and I also love writing with a brush instead of a paint marker.

I used a beautiful Recoleta font here and matched the colour of the letters with the interior design, which is a very delicate pistachio colour in titanium. I should take pictures inside the restaurant soon, to see how it looks when displayed! Finished board has all the chalk removed and had lots of room to be filled by delicious local beers served at Antico.
Have you ever wondered who painted all the hops around the @coastmountainbeer board in Function! I did 💁♀️ They make my favourite lager and it’s made out of Polish hops. I was able to tell!
Sign no 2 for Pizzeria Antico. There’s 5 of them in total and they have a design coherent with the restaurants logo colours, hence black, white and gold. We reused the old boards they had since years and gave them a new life. All the boards got deep cleaned and received a fresh layer of high quality blackboard paint.
Those guys are awesome, make sure to check their pizza out!

I made this logo for my side gig which is painting sandwich boards and signs -> check @blackboardwhistler ! It was a cool process, from a sketch to this, many tutorials on the way included. #alwayshandpaint
Today Rouge royal for a base board to match the mantel. for the fabulous @thomasjayne and @jwcullum . The base was very pink so rather than redo the base coat I applied a semi opaque gray glaze and added different grays with the 2 header and chiqueter from the palette. Rather than having a solid base coat ialready made a nice texture that helps for the cutting of the fragments with a single brecheur and the wood 2 header. Then a few very fine fissures and some larger one. And quick transparent over glazing with burnt umber and yellow ochre and we are done. #fauxmarble #c #decopaint #alwayshandpaint #baseboard #decorated @gidp_nyc @fauxbrushes
Una excusa para hacer...⠀⠀
Me gusta reutilizar un material o elemento que al principio tenia otro destino, buscarle otra posibilidad, encontrarle otro lugar, y generar algo "nuevo". ⠀⠀
Me quedaron varios retazos de fibrofácil de un laburo que hice, como siempre fueron a parar a la casa de mis viejos contra su voluntad. ☺️ Pero esos dias se acabaron! Fui a cortar los retazos y tengo una excusa perfecta para sentarme, bocetar, pintar y practicar.⠀⠀
