Mr. J's Panel Jam
On May 5th, Julian “Mr. J” Braet and his wife Linda hosted their third panel jam at Mr. J’s Sign Service in Paterson, NJ. More than 100 professional stripers, automotive painters and hot rodders attended. Some of the most talented sign artists on the East Coast striped and painted all day long.
Mr. J and Linda provided food and drink to ensure that no one was hungry. AAA Event Services, “East Coast” Artie Schilling of Artie’s Party/Syracuse Nationals, Auto Art Magazine, Coast Airbrush, DuPont Paint, “Joe R”, Mack Brushes, Mike Frederick of Unique Signs, “Nubs” of FBS Tape & Auto Body Supplies, Ronan Paint, RTape, Xcaliber and Zeke Lemanski and Family contributed door prizes for the participants to help make the panel jam a success.
Although the sky was overcast, nothing (including drizzle) could dampen the spirit of the attendees. Mr. J’s Panel Jam was a great excuse for friends to get together and a great way to spend a Saturday. Mr. J and Linda thanks all of the artists, friends, relatives and all of the hot rod guys, who helped make this a really great party. I am sure that everyone looks forward to the next gathering.
