Winners

 

It is my pleasure to announce the winners of the February 2007 edition of the Sign Of The Month Contest.


This month featured one of the tightest races in the 3D Ground category with Chuck Peterson's "Private Road" narrowly edging out Dan Sawatsky's "Alliance Church" entry.

Mark Yearwood showed his awesome designing skills and fabrication prowess with his "Two Hearts" taking the Overall Winner. Mark will collect a prize of a caricature of his choosing from John Deaton. Now, that is one heck of a prize!

Jill Welsh took the inaugural "Design Workshop Challenge" by narrowly edging out Alicia Jennings and Michael Bendel. With three votes separating the three of the them, it could not have been much tighter! Jill will receive a Createx Paint helmet video for her prize.

Project:
Two Hearts

Sign Company:
Yearwood Design Works - Weatherford, OK

Designer:
Mark Yearwood

This was the main entry sign and part of a 12 sign system for a new upscale B&B. The owners had seen some work of ours that was similar and wanted that look.

HDU sandblasted and hand carved, multiple layers, 23k gold leaf, faux rust finish on border. Sign was painted with Rhino Acrylics.

Size of sign is approx 48''x53''

The bracket was all hand forged by a blacksmith and powder coated. Hearts on bracket gilded. A file of the ribbons was sent to Ray Chapman and he roughed them out with the ShopBot router to speed things up, then they were hand shaped.
