Today, most signs are designed with computer software and printed onto vinyl banners. But for WCAI’s Creative Life series, I found an old-school sign painter in Brewster, MA. Here's the story of Greg Vaughan.

Greg's demo sign of my name. After he finished painting, he handed the brush over to me and guided me through the basics of sign painting.
