I like old hand-made signs because they are a peculiarly ego-free art form. While a good sign attracts attention, its purpose is not to call attention to ITSELF, but to direct the viewer to a place of commerce, a service, or another destination. This is where signs diverge from graffiti. Graffiti is a signature. A pure expression of ego. In a beautiful sign, the artist disappears behind the intention which allows us to see it’s beauty more clearly.
