With the big features now largely completed it is time to move to the next phase of the WhistlePunk Hollow Adventure Golf project. And that would be the signs, which are routed from Precision Board of course. During our recent workshop one of the re-occuring questions was in regard to the framework of structure in our signs
Speaking From Experience
Dan Sawatzky is best described as the major creative force in the sign industry today. He and his wife Janis are owners of Sawatzky’s Imagination Corporation – a small family company that specializes in the design and creation of dimensional theme signs and environments. They tackle projects of any size from small signs to entire theme parks. Their work has garnered numerous international awards and Dan’s articles appear frequently in the sign trade publications. Dan and his crew also host Sign Magic Workshops in their studio a number of times each year with attendees coming from around the world.

Yesterday was an exciting day as it was time for the second delivery to the WhistlePunk Hollow project. Each time we make a delivery it is a fun drive with lots of waves, wows and thumbs-up along the way
The Sculpture Magic Workshop began four days after the last. This time we had four who attended the first workshop and then stayed for the second. This meant I had to keep things fresh, not repeating myself too much
The spring 2013 Sign Magic Workshop is now behind us. We had a full workshop with a class of very eager students. We changed things up a little this time with the meals taken in the new house.
The spring workshops are now just around the corner with the first students due to arrive tomorrow. We’ve been busy getting ready! The samples the students will work on are all prepared, The name plaques are getting their final touches
Here’s the second batch of name plaques – ready for the workshop. There is still another bunch of name plaques in the painting process
Creating files in EnRoute is great fun! Watching the files become real as they are routed from Precision Board on our MultiCam still fascinates me, even after more than six years. But it is the painting process where the real magic happens
