Improvisation in Signage
Outskirts of Manila, ice cream stopover.
Been awhile. My absence began when my laptop so tragically met its death, work terror began, Ondoy happened, I had friends over from other countries, etc. I have been shamefully busy, to a level I am theoretically opposed to. But anyway, on to Snowpy.
The original logo.
For many small businesses and food carts, sign fabrication is a one-time expense. I've seen signs across the metro with pieces of paper stuck on to eliminate phased-out products and prices. This one was particularly cute.
An improvisation, with Snowpyboy hugging a flavored cone, done in crayon and wrapped in packing tape.
