I love vintage signage, so the text-based work of San Antonio artist Gary Sweeney is very appealing to me. I had the good fortune of visiting his studio a few years ago and really enjoyed learning about his art. I especially like his piece outside of the San Antonio Museum of Art. Not only are the letters awesome but so is the statement - it's a quote by Theodore Dreiser. I like how cheerful it looks. When I was setting up my home studio last year I was inspired to include some sign letters of my own. I picked out a few letters at my favorite vintage/junk shop in San Antonio, Yeya's Antiques and Oddities, and got to hanging my bit of retro cheer.
