This past Monday, we were able to pull together an impromptu lecture and demo with John Downer after we had to cancel the original one because of hurricane Sandy. John showed his many photographs of hand-painted signage from Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Portland and Mexico. He also gave a great brush lettering demonstration at the end of his lecture where he spoke about brush efficiency, proper use of color and tools, letter spacing and speed. He was able to bust out the sign you see him working on above in about half an hour. Guess who got to keep it!? Thanks John and thanks to all who made it.
