No branding, Grashopper. The Villages at Sonterra (San Antonio) wanted a landmark clock tower in lieu of typical monument signage. The client loved this from day one, and without revising a single brick, has carried the design over to sister developments. It has been constructed as a two-sided and a four-sided structure. The horse with no name.

The first poor slob that spills a beer on this table is going to end up hanging from a tree.

This is a fledgling effort at a web/blog-presence for me. Posting and editing and all that fun stuff...It's my chance to find out if I hate it, or if I REALLY REALLY hate it...I'll know fairly quickly.
My daughter is an award-winning blogger in the real estate world, and I've embarassed her a few times on her own site via comments. Now she has to worry about watching what I may be posting, here..
My beautiful wife, Trish, will also need to monitor the site, so I'm not wasting my time posting a bunch of gooey crap for no good reason...Make me proud, honey. ILYM

(click for avi, or just look at the grey...)
Can't do much to make a medical job look sexy, except to place a 3D girl from IClone. Seems like all their models are built by 14 year old boys. None of them look like Ellen Degeneres or Barbara Bush...thank the stars.

East Sixth Street, Austin. A new club slated for the 200 block. The historical district requires adherence to a "period" look. I guess it all depends on which period you mean... I remember the signs on sixth street back in the early 60's. Many were hand painted, and full of bullet holes, just like the store and tavern windows. Most of East Sixth street wasn't all that romantic, or historically exciting, just really rough. So rough, my mom would make us roll the windows up in the car, and she'd run the red lights.
I've designed an open-face channel letter v-sign with exposed neon, and sequenced incandescent chaser lights at the bottom of the cabinets; Marqueed cabinets with ZipaTrack lettering, white plex backlit panels, and tubular aluminum accents finished gold. Gold mirrored Chemetal laminated soffits around lamps; Open face "spade" with clear red 15mm neon;
There's an existing blade sign that may also be refitted. We'll see. Aces has the dubious honor of a tree-covered storefront. One of the few on sixth. Sign vs. Trees... Sign usually loses...
