Made in Austin, Part Four...

Final "Made in Austin" feature post, everybody! We wrapped up our week by heading over to Matthew John Winters' house to watch him make the elements of a custom "Made in Austin" piece. Outside of making this awesome artwork for us, Matt is a local artist who has created pieces for Yellow Jacket Social Club, Car2Go and many others. He also works full time as the Preparator at The Contemporary Austin

We spent time with him as he sawed and sanded wooden letters in his backyard with his dog, Ernie. 

Hi Ernie!

Hi Ernie!

Just a couple of days later, Matt brought the sign over to my studio so we could document the finished product -- which now has a home in the Tribeza office.

Thanks to everyone at Tribeza, especially Katie Friel, for making this feature happen and for having me along for the ride!
