Designer Keith Scharwath has a sideline in unabashedly retro, warmly rendered typographic paintings—he refers to them modestly as hand-painted signs. His works quote snippets of the American vernacular—action-oriented sentence fragments like “Here comes success” and “Just business”—and his typography evokes the detached, consumerist irony of Pop Art. Gorgeous stuff.
A few of his original works are available for sale, and more samples are on view, at scharwath.com.+
