Meet Our Artist: Jim Urban

Local sign painter, scenic artist, and muralist Jim Urban has been painting barn signs at UCSC since the early 1980s.

Jim renders all the artwork for each Barn sign. He projects the artwork after dark onto a freshly painted panel and hand sketches the design onto the panel. He then hand paints the sign during daylight hours. The entire process may take 3–5 days to complete.
