Tiv seems oddly quiet around this beauty,… looks like there’s some history here,… dun dun dun. The plot thickens.
Also, I’ve decided this storyline has a bit more life to it than I had thought originally. More to come soon. (hopefully I can figure out how to properly set up timed posts)

Looks like this might be Little D, the owner of this fine establishment.

Next JDGAF will be up on Tuesday.

JDGAF has been sitting unworked for quite some time now, but we’re back in the swing of things. Picking up where the story left off with Tiv and Thules on their day out. Links below for a refresher.

Will be posting another on Friday of this week, already finished and edited. Have more in the works for the following week. So, keep an eye out for more of those strange characters.

JG out.

The sign gigs have been going pretty so far. The more I work within the constraints of a limited set of colors and a black background, the more I realize i can just have some fun and create different looks. That might be part of why I’ve gotten a few call-backs to places to expand their sign selections already. Here are a few new ones for your enjoyment.

O’Hanlon’s on 14th street (just west of 1st Ave)

Pretty similar layouts with different art thrown into the mix. Also had a brand new, never before used board to play on which was pretty fun.  Set the opening standards high.

Exchange Bar & Grill on 3rd Ave between 20th and 21st streets.

Was asked to come in and do signs for their weekend brunch menu, and played around a little more with different looks. Although I have realized that the chalkboard pens I use are definitely going to be needing replacements already.

It’s been fun so far, although I still havent really started handing out cards at all the bars yet, mostly because I’m still figuring out what’s an appropriate price range for work and materials, and second because I’ve been out of town working on some projects so haven’t been local.

Will most likely have at least one new JDGAF comic up for you guys by next Monday, and another two by the end of next week. This traveling for work bit and lacking a portable computer are slowing down my updates. Going to have to correct that soon.

JG out.

Was recently asked by one of the businesses I’d done work for, to come back and do more of their signs.
Pretty much given free reign on what will work for their present look, and be legible, so this is what I created for them. Simple stuff to show off their draft menu. The smaller boards I just redid the lettering, the bigger boards I got to play with a little more.

Nothing mindblowing here, just simple ideas that make the boards more interesting and eye catching than simple lettering.
Hopefully more business along these lines coming up in the near future.
