Jeff Canham: Signage

Posted by Scott

Jeff Canham is a sign painter / designer who hails from my very own neighborhood. Funny how I had to stumble across his site on a blog to realize this guy is operating right down the street from me. Such is the irony of internet I suppose. Anyways, it’s great to see that somebody’s still doing it the old school way; if it weren’t for artists like Canham, dying design mediums such as hand lettering would disappear completely. You can check out the rest of his work at his site.

Totally reminds me of “Small World” at Disneyland. I just used my (analog) airbrush for the first time in 11 years. I’d forgotten so much about the beauty of hand tools, and their real world tactile applications.

Some of the coolest graphics I have seen in a while. Knowing that it’s all hand-made makes it refreshing to see – thanks for posting Scott!

You just missed a sign painting workshop by Jeff at VASF on Haight just this past Sunday (17th). It was pretty rad, and nice to add something else to the list of things I have no aptitude for.
