Meet Woody Boaters Derek McDonald sign Painter, and his side kick shop manager Tina Vines who are out on the west coast in Northern California. What struck us was how into it they are regardless of all the new technology there is. Derick says it right, just because you can skip to the modern way doesn’t mean you have to. There is an organic look and feel to his art, and it is art, that can be felt.
I suppose for some outside of the culture of classic boats, doing things the correct way by hand is a bit nuts and romantic. But there is a truth to it. Its why Varnish still is the only way to go on your boat. The same is for Derek. Jack Daniel’s did a fantastic video with Derek that captures it all.
If you are within a good distance of Northern California, Derek would LOVE to hand letter your boat the way Chris, Gar, and John would have wanted you to do! You can visit his website Golden West Sign Arts HERE.. There are some very cool pictures on there. Worth the click for sure.
So there ya have it, very cool old school sign painting for your business and slick gold leaf lettering for your boat! How about having Derek do your classic boat show poster. Or club house, or boat house sign. Man Cave.
