I am working on a logo design for a neighborhood grocer in Madison and wanted a period look from the "good ole days". Being that my reference library is rather small I called up a letterhead friend of mine, Mike Meyer, from northern MN to see if he had any old ads he could fax over or email...this was Tuesday. At about 5:30 today I got call from him saying "Im staring at the Grumpy Troll sign, where the hell are you?" Needless to say he made a 6 hr trip to drop off what many would call "old gold" in the sign world. So honored and thankful. This man is a living legend in our small world and quite the character...very very good people!
|This is the stash he dropped off..I could spend days studying these, fucking amazing stuff that you never see anymore...all done by hand|
