A little donated time for St. Patrick's Grade School in Springfield, IL #painting new lines on their gym floor. For years they have just put down duct tape each year and really needed something a bit more permanent. Their handyman did a fabulous job sanding down the tile and getting it ready for us. @ppgpaints donated all the paint, tape and rollers and my good friend and director of the Boys & Girls Club of Springfield @bgccentralil , Bill Legge worked with me making the job go super quick.
.
Always nice working with and helping a local school in need. Cant wait to see the floor after its waxed and polished. Those kids are gonna flip!!!

Thumbs up on this distressed #logopainting for @uptowngaragebrewing in Ankeny, Iowa. Loved having people tell me that it looked like it was original to the building. Best compliment I could ask for. #missionaccomplished . Great place as well. These guys really know what they are doing and have a stellar selection of local and craft brews. If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend stopping in...

#Mural repair and repaint for @augiesfrontburner in Springfield, IL. I originally designed and painted this #greengoddess mural back in 2015 but part of the wall blew off in a windstorm this spring which gave me a chance to update her hairstyle, make the phone number bigger and add more #pigment to her skin (sun bleached out most of the fleshtones). Really like how she turned out!

I love the smell of #aerosol in the morning!
Doing some repair work on my #greengoddess #mural from a few years ago. Part of the wall broke off in a windstorm so now I get to redo part of it. Fun!
.
I should be here for a few more hours at least. Farmers Market is going on and Downhome Music fest kicks off soon. Stop by and say "Hi!"

A little (after and before) #sign #repaint for @grabajava on 6th street in #SpringfieldIL . The original sign appears to be cut to shape HDU with a combo of vinyl, neon and the lettering is actually brass with black vinyl. As you can see, over the years, it almost completely faded out to nothing. Luckily, I could still see enough to redraw most of it and the lovely #barista cut the power so I didnt fry myself while working on it. Overall, the sign is still in pretty rough shape but at least now, it "looks" new again and should be good to go for quite a few more years. A little love goes a long way!

Bucky got some new bling!
I know it may seem ironic that I did #vinyl #signage on our bucket van while #advertising #signpainting, but, in some cases, vinyl is the way to go. This is one of those cases. Now I just need to get a little body work done and Bucky will be straight up gangsta! #ihavenostreetcred

So...I've actually had the vinyl for about a year but I wasnt sure if I was gonna keep Bucky or not and I am still not sure but he has come in handy and really not much of an expense so I figured I might as well "brand it up" instead of just having a stack of vinyl sitting in my office doing nothing. It does look good on him. I gotta admit.

I'm so happy your business is doing so well! (•‿•)

Cool!

I like the name Bucky.....reminds me of Snotty....lol

It's getting serious! 👍

Bucky looks good

35' logo on insulated metal panels for @certifiedangusbeef and @syscoatlanta
.
Sprayed the yellow gradient with @gracopaintsprayers Ultra Cordless and hand painted the rest using @ppgpaints DTM PittTech paints. That baby is not going anywhere!
.
Had a great time in #Atlanta . Met some great folks and ate some awesome southern cooking. Heading home for a day then up to Chicago for another project for CAB up there. Stay Tuned...

Awesome job! We appreciate you and all the hard work! Atlanta was hot and rainy!! It looks great!

I love your commitment and dedication to your craft!

I admit....I've missed that logo!

Great job awsome

Safe travels!!!!

At this point you’ve perfected the gradient... and the entire logo 🙂

What paint would you suggest for a wooden fence?
