Everyone needs banners and signs. All that drawing class confidence can be useful in helping friends who've misguidedly opened beer bars in gentrifying urban neighborhoods. Von Sven is a Stockholm-based expert in sign painting and pin striping. He's one of several sign painters featured in The Sign Painter Movie (which may or may not ever be released). In any event, he proves the commercial viability of painting skills.
