Arbor Sign Open

To make up for full speed ramming me on skis in 2010 Because he admires my work, ex-sailor  Tommy Stillwachs allowed me the honor of printing the open/closed sign for Arbor, a new taphouse cafe in Oakland he is involved with.  Owned and operated by Chris Marquez and Suzanne Stillwachs, Arbor opened last Saturday.   And that night it closed.  The next morning it opened and after precisely nine hours it closed yet again.

I would like to think my sign made all of this activity possible.

The sign was screen printed on some beautiful and seriously warped scrap wood.  Precision  screen printing requires a very uniform  separation  between screen and substrate, so I was happy this wasn’t a precision job.    The final prints turned out  appropriately sloppy.
