ike Heist has been working in the neon industry in Portland, Oregon for 30 years. He is a master in his craft, and is responsible for the bending of some of the city's most iconic signage. 10 SECONDS is a short film about work and happiness, and shares a bit of Mike's thoughts and insight into the amazing process of hand-made neon signage...

Hey that sure is nice of you to give graffiti the thumbs up. By the look of that sign you are indeed in need.

That could mean ESPO to you and some. Stephen Powers was commissioned by Ogilvy & Mather New York and Joshua Liner Gallery to create murals that reinterpret the words and quotes of agency founder David Ogilvy. This video sort of sums up what Powers is all about, his reasons, body of work, and his love of sign-painting.

San Francisco's New Bohemia Signs has been creating elegant and simple hand-painted signage since 1993. New Bohemia offers a full range of services including full scale menus, architectural gilding, and gold leafing, all created by hand in their very tiny shop. I visit them often as a source of inspiration, most recently, the work being produced for a group show entitled Genuine Authentic at Peek Gallery on February 10th.

Today meaning Saturday, January 15, 2011. What we have always enjoyed about Alex Pardee, besides the immense talent and body of work in film, fine art, and commercial endeavors is his ability to enjoy his fans. That is why we applaud his signing at Corey Helford Gallery today, for which his Vertigo exhibition opened last week. Information after the jump . . .
