Atlanta's Handpainted Signs
If you're from an old city, hand painted signs around cities can easily be taken for granted. However, they're rapidly being replaced for back lit computer-set type or even being repainted. Most of you are familiar with Atlanta's charm: sweet tea sipping aunts sitting next to the next big hip hop artist at Mary Macs Tea Room. Joe captures a rawness of Atlanta's personality:

A SCAD graduate, Joseph Veazey is a graphic designer and artist that was, until recently, based out of Atlanta. We wish him luck in the Big Apple!
