Recent work – Danza del Sol Winery

Got to spend a pleasant afternoon working on this wall graphic yesterday. Danza del Sol Winery, in Temecula wine country (near San Diego CA) built a new barrel room and event facility. Big City was asked to paint themed graphics on the subtly faux aged finish background, here is the result:

Recent work – Promenade at Downey – THE VULTEE ARCHIVES AND HISTORY MUSEUM

Recently Big City was given the task of reproducing the Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation logo on the building front of an upcoming museum. The Promenade at Downey retail development in Downey (near Los Angeles, California), was built on property that was used by this company in Downey’s rich history in the Aerospace industry.

The project included making the logo look like it had been weathered and aged – in a “ghost sign” style. Got to love that corrugated metal, too. Here are some progress photos, and the final result.

First, a beautiful tile floor logo that remains inside the building – this is what the project was based on:



On the outside of the building, then, here is how our instant-aged logo developed:





After everything was finished, I went back and got this photo:

A little sign painting project

Here’s a little sign painting project this sign painter did recently in Vista, near San Diego CA. 5 spots on the building – is it whining to complain about the 110˚ heat? Sometimes, the time chooses you…

First, the pattern …

Apply the pattern to the wall, dust with charcoal … paint the sign, rinse, lather, repeat.
