Many of my photographs were used to illustrate the entertaining article on “Ghost Signs of Montana” in the Spring 2017 issue of Big Sky Journal. The magazine is available in both a print and online edition.
I gave a talk on Ghost Signs at the Altadena Library in August 2016, and, due to popular demand, repeated it in January 2017. Thanks to Dick Hodgman for these photos!
Prior to the talk, I was interviewed by the Pasadena Weekly for an article about my ghost sign project.

I got together with Craig Winslow for his Light Capsules show at the Palace Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles. The theater is at 633 S. Spring St. This parking lot will soon be filled with new construction, so go see the original sign now. You can see more about his Light Capsules Project, sponsored by Adobe, on his website.

I’m getting together with Craig Winslow – an Adobe Creative Resident – this Saturday, February 25, for one of his Light Capsule shows, this one in Los Angeles. He is using one of my ghost signs, the one of the Palace Newsreel Theatre, to create a projectable image onto the building that overlays the original image and creates a “restored” effect. This should be great fun. He has an announcement on Facebook.
The ghost sign is located at 633 S. Spring St. in downtown LA.

I’m also supplying Craig with an image of the Hubbell Trading Post in Winslow, Arizona.
