Custom painted sign panels

Chris dobell hand painted vintage sign panels north america
Got some new sign panels for the office from my pal - the amazingly talented Chris Dobell of Dobell Signs. We met here on FB after a discussion on how to execute block drop shadows, as Chris illustrated here on the lower panel. Very cool, but rarely used lettering effect. Thanks pal!
