  1. Good shot and good eye that you noticed the sign in your wanderings … I’ll pass a particular place many, many times and then one day stop and notice something about the building, the sign, the setting … good work.

    Assume this is a Downtown St. Pete restaurant … Jan or Dan Bailey’s …


    1. Nah, not St. Pete. Dan Bailey’s Fly Shop in Livingston, Montana. I flew out there overnight on my broomstick to see what I could scare up. 🙂


  2. Nice work, John. I love the inventiveness of signs and they most always, me being a sign painter, jump out at me. They’re a great opportunity for witty comment, decoration, and come on in. This one’s lovely, right down the smiley trout and bug bait. After decades of modernizing hip minimalism there’s a happy return to old fashioned literal stuff, three dimensional, and neon. Good catch.


    1. I’m starting to notice that too, the creativeness that signs and murals can exhibit. Tattoos and graffiti too. So much to look at, so little time. 🙂
