In 2011, a mother took her 12-year-old son to a car show, thinking he’d enjoy seeing all the interesting vehicles. She didn’t realize she was launching his sign painting career.

That 12-year-old, Ross Hastie, was awestruck by a sign painter who was striping and lettering a van at the show. From then on, Ross began learning to make letters and lines with a brush.
