Any use, reproduction or fabrication of these works is strictly prohibited.NOTE: Images/photos have a proprietary watermark in the background. Our unique Reddy Kilowatt drawings and images were designed & brought to life by myself and others in my family in a span of over 40 years. Several of these images are one of a kind and became a popular signature of our work. Many of these drawings depict Reddy Kilowatt in several variations and specific poses. Some of these drawings became very popular. A select few brought to life an unspoken underlying content whereas the viewer would see the work and develop their own idea of what the images actually communicated.
For example, one of our most popular works was named "KNIFE SAFETY". Originating and born well before the turn of the century by artist Timothy Covert, Knife Safety contained a 1950's freckle faced boy poised with Reddy Kilowatt holding a very intimidating and dangerous looking dagger. Throughout the entire design process a multitude of various adjustments in the content of our Knife Safety artwork brought out exactly what we were looking to accomplish.
Our idea was to get people thinking about that dagger verses Reddy Kilowatt simply holding a standard kitchen knife. Our design efforts were complex and detailed with an objective.Tweaking, (making adjustments), in the conceptual design of our "KNIFE SAFETY" image affording us exceptional results beyond our expectations. No single change or adjustment made Knife Safety the outstanding successful work it became. Various intentional subtle changes in the content of our Knife Safety artwork brought out exactly what we were looking to accomplish. Just introducing a dagger in Reddy's hand or considering a small droplet of blood coming from the knife would not, could not and did not bring about the successful results we achieved when Knife Safety was completed.
It was the combination of the innocent little boy appearing nervous, (almost scared), of "BIG" Mr. Reddy Kilowatt teaching the child to be careful with knives. Reddy Kilowatt's larger than life physical size making Reddy more imposing looming over the child with the dagger in his hand. Alternatively, Reddy Kilowatt displaying his standard friendly innocence all of his images are known for.
All of these factors provoked alternative thoughts from others. Some viewers would look at this rendering and come to the conclusion Reddy is about to do harm to the freckle faced boy. It is the variables in the artworks content that bring about an express interest in our work.Successful images and drawings don't just fall of the table. I personally watched Knife Safety evolve on the graphics easel at our shop for over 6 weeks. It became a standing joke teasing our artist about finishing the work before he retired. Marilyn Monroe's famous iconic image was a completely orchestrated venture.
While the public was led to believe a photographer just happened to be there at just the right moment when a huge puff of air from the Subway grate blew Marilyn's dress up and over her knees. So provocative was this image in the days when a woman's bathing suit was all one piece down over the knees and buttoning up at the neck. The famous photo carried that underlying sexual connotation of which made it a big deal in September, 1954.POWER COMPANY ELECTRIC COMPANY LIGHT COMPANY SIGN DIE CUT SUPER AWESOME HEAVY & THICK SIGN GREAT COLORS!

DOZENS of the same signs. Common sense reality check people. There is NO WAY someone has a never-ending supply of the same exact porcelain, used, preowned and vintage signs unless they are making them.These are fantasy fake reproductions listed as porcelain, used, preowned and vintage and are NOT even porcelain. The vast majority of buyers do not know the difference at all and this is what these deceptive sellers are counting on. Most of our signs are NEW and our listings are transparent. These signs are intentionally made to look old or vintage & described as preowned. The vast majority of these newbie sellers are mass producing their "preowned" signs of just about everything vintage they can find on the internet. Of course, these sellers are purposely not transparent with their descriptions. They are intentionally vague as most buyers do not take the time to do the research. In addition, they describe them as porcelain & 99.9% are.
The vast majority are a digitally enhanced graphics on steel or tin & then beat up using a multitude of various methods to accelerate an aged appearance. Everything from soaking in acid solutions & various concoctions of special chemicals all mixed, used & designed to produce & sell preowned signs with a vintage appearance. All of this performed in the art of deception.
Inspecting the back of the signs they are all virtually identical. Either black or white with bubbles & scratches here and there in various different spots.
Ultimately, it is very easy to spot these types/kinds of signs. There are dozens of sellers practicing the same identical questionable business practices mass producing fake porcelain fantasy signs. For the most part many of these signs are of decent quality & reasonably priced.
