Nice trailer for a doc a young Frenchman is putting together as part of his schoolwork. I'm talking with him about booking a screening at the Roxie, maybe, later this year, as a double feature with Horn Please, a doc about Indian truck painting.

There are some nifty antique maps of SF inside Terminal 2 at the airport, now. I don't guess I'll be flying anywhere anytime soon, but from the link below, you can click to large hi-def pics in the David Rumsey Map Collection.

If you've somehow still missed out on the MAD, WORLD-SPANNING CRAZE that is HAND-PAINTED SIGNS, you're obviously overdue for a screening of Sign Painters: The Movie! Avail yourself of a FREE opportunity, this coming Friday evening, at 9pm, at The Compound Gallery, on 65th St, in Oakland!

You might, while there, also peruse selections from New Bohemia Sign's latest art extravaganza, "EVERYTHING MUST GO!", reminding us all "from dust to dust", etc., etc...

And there'll be free popcorn!

Ahoy-hoy, we have an art show opening this weekend! It's called "EVERYTHING MUST GO! From Grand Opening to Clearance Sale: Harbingers of Change, Prophets of Revolution, Signs to get you excited about something new on the block!"

"EVERYTHING MUST GO!" grew out of earlier plans for a show focussed on imagining a post-apocalyptic future wherein hand-painted signs prevail, guiding us through the landscape and marketplace after the collapse of the electrical infrastructure. We opted instead, to shrink the apocalyptic element to a more human scale, and work with how signs describe worlds and livelihoods that begin and end every day: businesses that start-up and/or fail, always striving for your attention; new product lines and media spectacles, fleeting in nature, desperate for your gaze; personal reactions facing loss and/or the shock of the new.

A lot of the work in the show takes design cues from mid-20th century sources, the latest heyday of hand-lettered design, from which we've painted pieces in the style of magazine advertisements, game show sets, movie and travel posters, and department store window splashes. Other pieces draw source material from further afield, and via word play and recycled materials, direct our attention to the underlying theme that everything, ultimately, must go, and make way for something new.
Everything Must Go! -from Grand Openings to Clearance Sales: Signs of Change Examining the art of the “for sale” sign..Hand painted signs by some of the best Bay Area sign painters. Featuring signs by artists at New Bohemia Signs: Aaron Cruse, Ashley Fundora, Heather Hardison, Damon Styer, ...

WORKERS UNITE! 

An interesting article in last weeks NYTimes Magazine, about the growing popularity of worker owned co-ops in times (like these) when staying employed anywhere is a precarious endeavor,  http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/30/magazine/who-needs-a-boss.html, starts off with a visit to Arizmendi Bakery (for whom we've also done signs). I'm keen on it! Maybe I should ask Rainbow, when they come to pick up their billboard, how they're organized for tax purposes....

You may find this interesting, although, if you're already hip to the Spritz craze, it may be old news (or even tl;dr!). I found myself absorbed in the quirks of the hand lettering on the included pic of the Feb '38 issue of Liberty magazine.
In the last couple of weeks, for instance, a new app called Spritz attracted lots of attention with a promise to “triple your reading speed,” and a browser extension called Spreeder has been praised by vocal fans. Most of these tools seem to strive to increase reading speed by reducing “subvocalization” — the tendency to “say” what we’re reading to ourselves, in our heads — by using technology to tweak the way we see words.

At New Bohemia, the signs are all hand painted all the time!  We've been stoking the embers of authenticity since 1992.
