More Wedding Signage

Here's some signs I recently painted for a wedding. All painted with 1-Shot enamel.

For the Love of Pies

Added on by Andrew Beach.

This past Summer I had the opportunity to design some wedding materials for my good friends Alan and Sobrina. Coral was the primary color and the theme was, "For the Love of Pies" (because their last name is Pies.)

I used Adobe Illustrator for all the printed materials and 1-shot enamel paint on hardboard for the signs. Except for the drink labels, those were done with gouache on mat board.

It was a lot of fun making so many little pieces that all fit together to add to a single, cohesive theme.

Sobrina was nice enough to feature some really nice pictures of my designs on her block Quiet Like Horses. Here are some of those pictures.

Some recent wedding signage

Added on by Andrew Beach.

This Summer I've been painting signs for weddings.

Here are a few I made for my good friends Liz and Jon. These ones I painted with some white Rustoleum enamel. I apologize for the poor picture quality. Especially on that last one.

 

Here are a couple more I did for some more good friends. This wedding was in a beautiful grove of redwood trees in the Santa Cruz mountains. I didn't make the laser-cut wooden panels. The black background is spray-on chalkboard paint and the lettering was done with chalk-ink pens.

Junco album is finished!

Added on by Andrew Beach.

And to be totally frank, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

You can listen to it here: www.junco.bandcamp.com

Ambient, experimental, lo-fi indie rock or something like that.

I've been making some music...

Added on by Andrew Beach.

Along with my good friend, Jeremiah, under the name Junco.

I make the guitar sounds and sing words and Jeremiah plays on drums and uses computers to make sounds too.

My friend, Robinson, an excellent illustrator and artist painted the image for the album cover:

My friend, Rob, at Noise Root Studio, mixed and mastered the album.

This is what the back of the album looks like:

The whole "thing" is in the "finishing stages" at this point so I predict it will be available for listenings "pretty soon".

 

Valentimes gift

Added on by Andrew Beach.

I made this little doohickey for my lovely wife for Valentine's day. It's a 6"x8" glass pane and the design is painting in reverse on the back in 1-Shot sign painter enamel. It's my first attempt at reverse glass painting with 1-Shot and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! I still have to get a frame for it. 6"x8" turns out to be an extremely uncommon size for frames.

The Ace of Sandwiches

Added on by Andrew Beach.

This über rad sandwich shop in Palo Alto that makes über delicious sandwiches hired me to paint this mural on their back wall. I designed each letter in a different style and with a different color selection to be representative of the huge variety of sandwiches they have created. The painting measures 3'x19'.
