Thanks to the industriousness of Dale Pidlisny and the Better Letters Company (posted about previously here), Calgarians with steady hands and a love of lettering are in for a treat! A Better Letters workshop with local signpainter Rick Janzen is scheduled for June 28-29 right here in Calgary.

Rick has decades of experience in film and TV, heritage reproductions and commercial sign painting. His filmography includes Return to Gunsmoke and Brokeback Mountain to more recent films like Inception and Hell on Wheels.
