Signpainters of Detroit
Detroit blogger John Carlisle showcases some of the hand painted signs on walls from the motor city and meets the men who make them. It is interesting that many of them only use the signpainting to supplement their incomes or to support their other artistic endeavours.
Note the slogan on the picture above, taken from Corinthians, “A womans’s hair is her glory”, the first time I’ve seen the bible quoted on a piece of hand painted wall advertising. Also, the signpainters name in the bottom left corner, one of those that features in the article.
