Well it’s taken absolutely ages but my home signwriting space has finally taken shape! Tags are for the people behind certain things, @mikemeyersignpainter for painting my box lid, @1shotpaints and @ashandover for some of the best paints/supplies around in London, @artboytidwell and @alphajamesalpha for imported kit from the USA, Sam @betterletters for organising loads of stuff, @ngs_sign_writing_london_uk, @mikemeyersignpainter and @gedpalmer for giving me the confidence to wield a brush and everyone else that I’ve spoken to in the signwriting world which in London is a great place to be!

Some projects touch you in a different and personal way, David Nemesio @relojerianemesio is a friend, but it’s also a third generation watchmaker, a genious, a biker, a crazy geek...Nemesio was the name of his grandfather and I was honoured to hand drawn a lettering based on spanish old signs and hand paint it on his new shop with 23kt gold and enamels. Long life to your studio & family my friend ✊🏻🔥

Voici le résultat final du panneau en verre réalisé pendant l’atelier de dorure avec @thedebonairsignman. Il s’agit d’un verre édité pour le 43ème Letterheads à Londres. 
De nombreuses techniques ont été utilisé comprenant, la dorure à l’eau et à l’huile, avec trois variété d’or (or 23k, or citron 18k, et de l’or blanc 12k), deux types de dégradé (dégradé au pinceau ou au doigt) et l’incorporation de feuille de nacre. .

TICKETS PLEASE!

Spent yesterday afternoon lettering my first bus and what a beauty she is. Bertha has got her mojo back and is being restored to how she would have looked way back when in 1990. If you remember Liverpool in the 90s you'll probably remember these knocking about.

I painted four logos onto the bus based on a trace from an original panel. The lettering is pretty crazy and the F is a thing of beauty with strange flicks and oddly placed shadows. From photos it seems that all of the Fareway fleet had slightly different lettering dependant on the bus and presumably the signwriter. Rumours has it that these were painted by an old boy with the surname of Ball and his daughter.

Whilst I was doing the logos another chap from the bus yard was slapping on the numbers and lettering in his own style casual using no lay out, no stick, a tiny little brush and coach paint. Bit rough and ready but for someone just having a go I was pretty impressed.

Obviously I had to have a photo in the driver's seat! 🚌🚌🚌

Thank you to absolutely everyone who made the London Letterheads event 'London Calling' what it was - we had an amazing time and would do it again in an instant (after a sit down and a cup of tea!) These are just a few of our favourite photos - see the rest at the link in our bio or follow the #LondonLetterheads tag which has over 1,000 images now and counting!

This summer, signwriters and lettering professionals from five continents congregated behind the OXO Tower for London’s first ever Letterheads ‘meet’. The event was open to everyone, with a feast of visual treats in the free public areas.

Painted my first canal boat last week. ✨✨ Bacchante✨✨ Emily, the owner, just wanted to keep it minimal with an art Deco style so we kept all the lettering on the front gunwale. I drew out a pattern beforehand but it didn't fit the curvature of the boat so I scratched it on with a stabilo and went for it. Spot the glaring error in the third photo.

Thanks to Keith @urbancabinliving for the photo - I've never seen so many scowling photos of myself.

Anyway Bacchante relaunches today so she'll be back afloat in the Salthouse Dock (the one next to Albert). Happy Wednesday ✨✨
