I did this yesterday.
I'm just showing the back.
The whole van is one I did this spring.
This huy wants everything but the kitchen sink
on everything he owns!
In my opinion, this is busier than a cat
trying to cover crap on a marble floor.
But the customer loves it!
His old stuff was all Hellvetica.
As you can see, he is quite proud of being Irish!
All HP Avery vynull.
Love...Jill

This is a trailer I did for him,
again in vynull with a painted pinline outline.
The barn is all hand-painted.
Love...Jill

This is a big box van that is a mix of paint & vynull.
I did it 3 years ago.
This was before I discovered that Stevo finds Brush Script tacky.

This is the side of the van that I did yesterday, sans Brush Script.
I know they are busy!
I was busy going to the bank afterward.
:wink:

Looks great Jill - very Gaelic in a fairy tale, leprechaunish way - Strange how people become patriotic when they don't live in their country of origin anymore.

nice work jill.. its funny how when we look at work, there is always a feel of location. maybe ist just the van but the design looks very american.
you must see that continualy on work from this site i guess..
i know what you mean about folk wanting everything and anything on there vehicles. nothing worse for the one designing.. i always put something on the screen and it looks ok, but they see a space and think stick this in there.. when you do and juggle it all around, they see another space & think. i know, stick this in there!!!
andrew was designing a shop front and window for a customer last week.
when he finished she said thats very nice.. and turns to her 5 year old daughter and says, "ok, what would you like on it" the wee girl says.. "a bart simpson" :o this was a newsagent and coffee shop? anyway.. customer is always right, andrew went ahead and stuck on Bart....
before anyone says it.. we drafted in a signmaker to do the bart simpson specialy because we refuse to break the law doing it ourself. ahem :wink:

Thanks for the kind words.
I still think the vans are fugly.
But you should have seen his old stuff....even busier.
His air duct truck (hence the duck on the van)
has a 6' hideous evil-looking leprechaun on it.
I brought the guy back a coffee mug from Ireland....
you'd have thought I gave him The Holy Grail.
He's American-proud too.
But over here ancestry is a huge thing.
He always says "But can't we add-?"
To which I reply "NO!"
Love...Jill :-?

Great stuff Jill

Glad you could share
We all know how tricky a pinstripe outline can be

Its funny you should say that about saying NO to the customer
but I've done that so many times with the shaking of the head....
and it works
:no1: :no1:
