Some of you regular visitors might have noticed a drop in productivity here over in the last few months. Its not been because we’ve run out of rad stuff to enthuse about. Quite the opposite, we’ve been busy beavering away on our new site and the new chapter for Wheels On Toast.
Visit www.wheelsontoast.co.uk from now on where you’ll find the same (but better) blog stuff as always. Theres also a brand new section profiling brands and individuals we think deserve more then a lil old blog post. Finally theres a bit more info about the folks behind WOT and the other services we do if you’re so inclined to know.
Go on then, what are you waiting for, times a wasting. http://www.wheelsontoast.co.uk
When I was at art college I had a friend called Lee, he was a great skater, but most notably when we were all studying graphics and getting all excited about Apple Macs and Photoshop, he chose to pursue the fine art of signwriting. I’d catch up with him at on the bus home and would take the piss that he was studying something so fusty and analog as paint and brushes. Secretly I was jealous when I would see him practicing on his designated window at college and I also loved hitting people with his stick with a pad on the end (a mahlstick). Anyway I lost touch with Lee but at least Nicolai Sclater is keeping the grand tradition of sign writing alive. I first became aware of Nicolais stuff from his work on motorcycles but for me I love seeing it best on actual signage, where it not only looks beautiful but also performs an important function and puts all modern methods to shame.
