Two old signs in San Jose

I couldn’t resist drawing the AJ’s bar sign on Lincoln Avenue, kitty corner from Chromatic Coffee. AJ’s was a bikini bar and has been closed for a while. Rumor has it, it’s had a recent soft reopening, sans the bikini part.

And this is Taqueria Corona at the corner of Jackson and Forth in San Jose’s Japantown. The old-timers in the neighborhood sitting outside told me this marquee once held the sign of a pharmacy that occupied this spot.

I’ll have to dig around more to confirm that but I can confirm that they make giant and tasty micheladas.

  1. Excellent paintings of signs, vintage signs can be so fun to add to a painting. Speaking of signs, I am currently working on a Merry Christmas sign in acrylic paint on an actual sign panel, I am having a lot of fun with it!!
