Mastering the Art of Sign Painting - Mike Meyer

Mastering the Art of Sign Painting - Mike Meyer

July 15, 2019

The Craft Hangout gang is fascinated by traditional sign painting, and we got the most incredible sign painter to hang with us, in person-- Mike Meyer! He has been painting signs since the 70s and has seen the industry move in many directions, but he has always remained true to himself and the craft of painting signs. He gained international recognition after appearing in the critically acclaimed movie, Sign Painters. Mike still has a business of painting signs but now has his own line of brushes and continues to keep the art form alive by teaching a new generation of artists the traditional craft of painting signs... and he makes new friends along the way.

How to Build a Career with Purpose Through Food and Flavor - Airis the Chef Johnson

July 8, 2019

Did you ever wonder how some people are able to build a creative career by doing the thing that they love while simultaneously creating a life filled with purpose? We got to hang with celebrity chef, Airis Johnson, and she filled us in on how she's done it. You may know Airis the Chef (ATC) from being a champion of the hit TV show Chopped, but how did she get on the show and win? And how did she go from flipping burgers to executive chef? How did she get her own line of spices off the ground? She tells us all the deets over this awesome mega-inspirational episode of Craft Hangout.
