Handmade :: Sign Painters

Dir. Samual J. Macon

Probably something that most of us take for granted- signs.  They are every where.  They are on the sides of buildings, on walls, dragging behind airplanes, on street corners, and hanging on door handles.  We cannot go more than a few steps without seeing one, but we probably don’t take the time to think about the origin of each sign.  At least I don’t.  I find that I’ve learned to ignore many of them.

Perhaps I would notice them more if I could tell that time and effort had gone into its creation and that it really was a piece of art.  Sadly, most signs that I see are machine made.  And perhaps that’s why I like this trailer.  It makes me stop and think about what I’m looking at and all the while, pointing out that we have traded in artwork for a cookie cutter print.  Once again, handmade seems to have its advantages…
