New Window Signs at the Bar B-Q Shop

While I have covered Calvin Farrar's Christmas decorations at the Bar-B-Q Shop multiple times in the past, this post covers the restaurant's permanent signs.  Every few years, the Bar-B-Q Shop's permanent window signs, with its dancing pigs and business name, need retouching.

First things first: a redesigned front door.

An interested passer-by who may or may not be soliciting the artist for some change.

Unfortunately, hand-painted signs are a rarity these days.  Kudos to Mr. Farrar and his many clients such as the Bar-B-Q Shop for keeping this artform alive.

Are they open today?

The completed front door.

And the completed front window.

"I like it."

There's no job too small for Calvin Farrar

The Man.  The Myth.  The Legend.

Mr. Vernon explains the vision.

"Excuse me."

This is going to take a ruler.

The final product.

Getting locked out of the apartment

It's happened to all of us.

Keep moving along.  There's nothing to see here.

"Um.  Why haven't you gotten in yet?"

"Well, help me!"
