Wade what?


Some signs don't want you to have any fun 

City Life

Here are two city scenes I painted on sheets of plywood for a circus set last Spring.


 The person who commissioned them requested the inclusion of a burning building with someone crying for help. I obliged and added in a few unicyclists as well. These were fun to paint.

Scotty


Pizza and dancing in the heart of Maryville, Tennessee.

Compass Heating & Air





Some great brushwork on Central & Heiskell Ave.

Recently Buffed



The TV & VCR Repair biz ain't what it used to be and this building on Broadway has sat dormant for a few years now. Only recently however did the outside get a facelift from a spray gun and now this sweet specimen of text is gone under the buff. 



¡El Girasol!





The Sunflower in Bearden.

Vintage Sign Craft



Here's a cool trick via the internet via a magazine via Tom Rose in Sarasota some years ago.

Handpainted Harvest


 Here's a good business with a sign to match. Second Harvest food bank in Maryville with a nice hand painted piece in their warehouse.


Shout out to the artist, Alex Franklin, on a job well done.
