The first boat John Teeto lettered was a very large boat—and it was in the water, which was something he hadn’t done before. That meant working off a float that was pitched up and down by the constant waves. The customer gave him the job, paid him in full, then left for Europe. When John got on the float and started lettering, his motion sickness got the best of him. He could only do two or three letters at a time before getting off the float to throw up.
“What an experience!” he says. “I so wanted to walk away from that job but I just couldn’t. The guy had paid me, and I promised it would be done when he got back. It was the longest lettering job of my life. Thankfully, though, as you get used to it and concentrate more on your lettering, bobbing around on a float doesn’t bother you anymore. I do it all the time now.”
