Bonita Ranch has an outdoor billboard sign to identify its campground. It is located in the Devore Pass at Lytle Creek, Calif.
I had found out an old friend of mine owned the place and I stopped by awhile back and noticed that the existing sign was in bad shape. I suggested to the owner that I’d like to do a couple of sketches and if she liked the ideas for the new sign I would give her a price.
Becky loved the sketches and after adding some amenities to the sign she ok’d moving forward. It is a 4’x10’ and back framed with 1×4’s. The sign is primered front and back and the background painted with enamel. I hand lettered all the copy with One Shot enamel and camel hair brushes.
The waterfall is a focal point at the campgrounds. It sits up on the mountain but is visible from the site. Bonita Ranch sits next to Lytle Creek and is quite beautiful and gives the impression you are deep in the mountains.
The illustration of the waterfall I painted from a furnished picture of the waterfall and used my overhead projector to place it on the sign.
I delivered the exterior sign and Becky contracted out the installation. They did a good job of removing the old sign and installing the new exterior identification sign.
