The Original Street Art

Some good examples of the art of the pub sign on the BBC website.

Strangely enough, while glancing through the many fine examples, my eye was caught by the sign for The Milk Churn in Wiltshire. Something oddly familiar about this one…..

Milk Churn

This is a photo, first featured on this blog a couple of years ago, of my dad painting a milk churn for a wedding. At first I thought it was a coincidence, just a very similar image, until I noticed that the artist had even copied the holes that used to house the spindles of the busted old chair that my dad uses in his workshop, even down to the crack on the edge of the seat.

So there we have it – Vaughan Jones (kind of) immortalised on a pub sign in Wiltshire.
