The film, Up There. There are not many of these guys left.

I used to tell people, “Sure, I did high work.”

Okay, I painted a few second story walls and once I lettered a water tower. Big deal.
But this film celebrates sign artists that work at a much higher level, and I don’t mean just in altitude. They represent an extraordinary craft that has almost disappeared.

If I could have my youth back, would I trade places with them? Yes, in a New York minute!

Up There

The hauntingly beautiful soundtrack is by The Album Leaf.
