The Atomic Sign

My good pal, business partner, and long time sign painter (Mr. John Mearns of Sign Source) was in town last weekend for the Lonestar Round Up car show. Despite the unseasonably cloudy and cold weather we had here in Austin, we decided to tackle my building with some brushes and 1 Shot.

The Electric Station

This is absolutely bitchin… A swede designer decided to make an electric work station inspired a 19th-century writing desk. It features a ton of drawers for storing solder, connectors, wire, etc… Plus, space for a built-in computer, a soldering system, and all kinds of other modern niceties. Inspiring.

Jack Stand Storage

Jack stands are a total pain is the ass to have around… I guess that’s why so many numbskulls are killed every year by their absence – they are just sick of dealing with them. “BB767″ however, is here to save lives.

Barn Lettering

Just down a country road from me lives an older gentlemen that has a passion for vintage railroad buildings. So much so, that he has bought 5 or 6 of them, deconstructed them, and then reconstructed them on his property. He’s now renting them out to small businesses and has created a wonderful little office park.
