    Hi my name is Leo and I am very new to the sign industry (started october 2006 out of my house) my related experience is Lots of drawing and vandalism (graffitti as a kid) and I ran a body shop for 2 years. I just want to thank everyone on the forum for all their help. I learned almost everything by browsing through the posts on this site. So I finaly became a member and as an offering to the Sign gods I am posting some of my work. Since I just started my business I basicaly gave these jobs away to build a resume. The response has been overwhelming so all is great!

    2007 CHARGER
    took me 3 hours using ORACAL 090 silver gray. I drew the graphic out a few years ago and I use it in some of my company flyers and other designs, thats where the owner of the car saw it and wanted it on his car.

    Barber Shop
    Hand painted, completed in 3 days with no hurry. Drew the design on paper, cleaned it up in photoshop then pounced it on the wall

    The owner gave me some artwork and I tweaked it to perfection

    Stereo Shop
    7ft by 6ft vinyl on pvc sheets. I REALLY wanted to paint it on the wall 12ft by 10ft but the owner cheaped out, Its a real shame too because I dropped the price twice over the course of 2 weeks just so I could paint it on the wall and still no go.

    Welcome from the Great Pacific Northwest.

    (Leo...you may want to look closer at your flyer. I think there may be a mispelling of the word sketch)

    Good to have you aboard.

    Also, in the middle paragraph it says "agressive" it should be "aggressive". I like that Charger by the way!

    You are on your way from what I can see. Very good workmanship. You definitely are showing skills.

    So, stop going with the cheap pricing.
    Good stuff.
    Not sure if perfection is the right word.
    Red on black , makes me hack.
    Welcome.

    Welcome from Oklahoma!

    Nice work. Bet you like doing it better than the vandalizing. Pays is better too.
    Good Luck!
