Is there anything more satisfying than a perfectly smooth line? I love looking at it. I love watching it happen. I even love how it happens in different mediums! Ink, charcoal, paint, it doesn’t matter. Just give it to me.
There is also something so refreshing about watching a film about those who define their work as ‘Sign Writers’. Not typographers, not some other fancy synonym, but Sign Writers, doing a simple job handed down through generations, a trade. Whether or not they would consider their work art doesn’t negate that their work is certainly worthy of your gaze. Take a minute and watch this great short film about Sign Writers in Dublin.
Thanks to my buddy Conor for the tip!
