Love Lettering

Nathan is the artist-in-residence at Made with Love, Jersey City’s only organic bakery on Jersey Avenue. Over Labor Day weekend, the bakery was closed so its exterior and interior could be repainted. The freshly painted bakery re-opened the following weekend with the announcement of a new Jazz brunch on Saturday and Sunday mornings. I heard the cats while taking some of these pictures and they were swinging. Seriously, they sounded great. Nathan had the task of creating a new store sign. Although Saturday was raining, Nathan worked undeterred. “The overhang keeps the space for the lettering dry. I outlined the letters earlier and now I’m painting. I’ll finish it today.” He did at that. His work progressed well into the afternoon. The secret he said is to outline the letters first then just paint them in. I also noticed, start with the preposition.

  1. Nice work, Nate.

    If you need a sign, people, Nate's your man.
