I'm hoping some of us out there actually might have a breather and can gather ourselves for some new 2013 projects in our stores. Some of you in big NFL playoff cities may be gearing up for some appetizer/chip promotions....is the company still doing the endcap competition? I think it was this round last year?
Anyway, I wanted to share this magnificent sign Kerri from Store #512 in Hadley-MA sent in. This one is gonna be a GREAT addition to our banana sign collection here at the Hub!

This one just has a glow of brilliant color! It's just an eye-popper. Kudos to such a great saturation & color selection to really make this sucker pop, Kerri! Yowza!
The dimension & shading of our delicious friend, the banana, is pretty intense and just spot-on in giving it a tremendous amount of depth & realism. The textures & detail on it just really make it look like a giant banana (I'm sure there's a Woody Allen prop gag in there somewhere...haha) This is all attributed to your paint skill; what a remarkable piece of work!
I REEEAAAALLLY love the choice of the turqoise color. It creates a nice backdrop for the black letters and just complements the yellow & green so much! It also looks good against the Trader Joe's wood walls we are all so familiar with; I might have to remember that for future signs.
I'd love to have some feedback from you in the comments, because this sign is big in scale, has some interesting shape to it and looks to be multiple pieces maybe. I think it would really be helpful to a lot of us to give some insight on your process. My guess is that this is masonite board, primered white a couple times to really make those colors brilliant on top. Painted in acrylic?
Thanks for sharing, Kerri. I hope we get to see more work from you and/your husband/fellow TJ's artist SOON!
