About Sign Art

It all started in 1979 when I left school and worked as a trainee sign painter at Harmony Signs in Fisher Street, Paignton.
Following several years of training under very talented sign writers and the endless painting of plywood, I decided it was time to unleash myself upon the world. Only to end up at Plymouth College of Art doing the City & Guilds course. Qualifications I was told, were very important!
Having left Plymouth College of Art clutching my handsome City & Guilds Certificate with distinctions - typically, the world of sign painting was about to change forever. It was 1988 and time to invest in a vinyl cutting machine and computer ( with 1 ram of memory and a 40meg HD ). This cost around £8,000 at the time, not much than a house a couple of years earlier.
My scanner, and I had the very first one around here, was £1500 and it was black and white only.
Life was slower as a sign artist, it took as long as it took. Vinyl created the instant fix that just was not possible when painting by hand.
Some very early projects from the 1980 / 82
