SIGN PAINTING / THE HEIGHTS IN LA
Mattie is an illustrator specializes in type illustration, and his interest lies heavily on letters. So Naturally, he has been fascinated by sign painting for a while now, and he has been practicing the craft at home. So when my friends asked Mattie to design and paint the exterior signs of their new deli, he was more than excited to take on his first sign painting assignment.
My friends’ soon-to-be-opening deli and bottle shop is called THE HEIGHTS. It is in Lincoln Heights, so we had to fly out to LA for a week. Even though I was in LA beginning this year, I thought it was a good excuse for me to join him to see my family again, hang out with friends, and also to help him. The job turned out to be quite massive, especially under the LA sun. We spent all week just painting and not doing anything much. But it was very satisfying and fun. And I also got pretty good at climbing up the ladders.
And here’s the finished signs!
We also painted the side wall next to the eating area.
We also painted all the beer signs which will hang in the shop. The whole week, we painted like mad people like this ; )
Us, very happy in front of Mattie’s very first sign painting job.
So Mattie’s sign painting business is open if anybody needs their sign painted ; ) Also make sure to visit The Heights for some good deli sandwiches and craft beer bottles, and of course, to see Mattie’s signs.
