    Is this thing on???
    How-d all...I'm Patrick from the Oregon Coastline.
    I'm an old school letterhead & pinstriper, and have been doing this stuff for some 30 years now.
    I've done just about every kind of sign job you can imagine...but my main stay has been big truck lettering & graphics. Naturally, I'll paint just about anything that comes through the door (especially these days :frustrated:).
    I also build custom motorcycles and hot-rods, and dabble in fine art & illustration too. (Now you can see where I got my business name!)
    I really hate technology, but did see where it could help, so...I got my first plotter about 16 years ago, and got my 2nd 2 years ago. I am now buying an older Edge machine too...just because I think I'm on to a neat use for it...and I'm hoping my kids may some day take over that part of the business from me...so I can get back to working with my hands.
    Well...that's the short version to my story...glad to be here!
    Oh, and I've been married to an awesome woman, that I definately don't deserve, for 24 years now too.
    Here's somma my work...
    my 1950 Chevy panel shop truck...in front of my shop...

    A 1903 horse-drawn fire wagon a good friend and I gold leafed...

    a patriotic flamejob I recently did on a rare 1956 Dodge coupe...

    and a horse barn my son & I painted...(corrigated tin sucks!)...

    Welcome to Signs 101. Enjoy your stay.

    It would be appreciated, in the future, if you would follow these instructions for uploading pictures. We prefer that all pictures be hosted here to insure that future readers will be able to see them as you intended. If they are off site, that might not be the case a year from now.

    Nice selection of work! Good to see another old-schooler.
