In Chicago, it’s rare to see hand-lettered signage in the gentrified neighborhoods. Most small business either can’t afford it or it’s viewed as not pro-level or too “ghetto”. Which, I’m sure we all agree, is super lame. Luckily there’s a bunch of people in this town who are making it their mission to keep this incredible craft alive. Enter mr. Andy Luce, aka Visual Armory. Andy’s a fellow-solopreneur who just happens to frequent Ipsento, a modest coffee shop right on the crack between the Bucktown and Logan Square neighborhoods. Andy made pals with the owner of New Express Muffler & Brake, also an Ipsento regular, and they made this beautiful mural-baby together. There you are folks, another shining example of community engagement. Makes me so happy to see. More, more, more please!
