Recent school mural project – Gabrielino High School

A hand-painted school mural project recently, over on the sign painting side of Big City Signs. Here is how it went…

Big City was recently given the task of designing and hand painting school murals at four locations around the campus of Gabrielino High School in San Gabriel, near Los Angeles, in Southern California.

Here is how it went:

First, along with the paper patterns, I usually produce scale printouts at a fairly large size — it’s so much easier to know where things are supposed to go when you’re close to the wall. Sometimes it’s even dangerous to try to step back to see if it looks right!

Then, on to the school. First was this track shed. Here are a couple of progress shots:

Here is the track shed, done:

Next, the stadium press booth. This was to get painted graphics, then dimensional brushed silver letters installed over the painted portion. The idea was to make a big impression for the school. Here are a couple of progress shots:

Recent work – dimensional letter sign

Recently, we provided signage for this retail location – SoCal Rod & Reel – Bait & Tackle in Temecula CA. The letters are moulded plastic with embedded color, built to last for many years, and a cost-effective choice for signs.

Recently we were asked to provide sign painting / cost-effective hand painted signage for this building’s somewhat challenging surface. Sign painters get used to this kind of thing! The slumpstone brick has variations in depth of 1-1/2″ or more in places, so the challenge was to make the graphics look printed onto the surface. Here are the results:
