Sign Painters Trailer

With the proliferation of printed signs, the trade of traditional sign painting has been dying out. I love the older painted signs... commercial graphics made by a craftsman's hand. This new doco about sign painters looks amazing!

How fantastic! My Mum took up showcard and ticket writing when I was younger but I still remember being fascinated at watching that slow steady brush. I'd love to see that doco! Some of those vintage signs are just amazing.

I am fairly new to your blog Tali but every time I visit I am so inspired, thank you.

I’ve just spent this afternoon compiling a new blog post in reply to being nominated for the Liebster award, and part of that is ‘paying forward’ the appreciation. And I find your work so inspirational I couldn't resist nominating you! Please whizz over to Ink Caravan to find out all the lovely details.
Thanks again, Alisa xx

ps. I know lots of us are stretched for time so I've made some adjustments to make it easier.
