Hello all. So here's the deal. The sign I have been using outside
in Ybor City almost got a ticket by the Barrio district police...
hehe! Well, the environment is like a nightclub district: lots of
shops, restaurants, etc. The owner of the coffee house where I work
warned me about the sign issue, everything put up outside has to be
approved by the historical barrio district committee or some shit.
*shrug* So I've been using this sign for a few months now and they
finally tell me about it. They say it's cool as long as my sign is
inside. Well, if I put it up inside the window I sit beside, half
the words of the sign will be cut off.

Now, when I went to FastSigns some time before they told me that to
render some designs I had on paper that it'd cost like $20 an hour
for their artist to render it. Can you imagine how long it'd take
for someone to do a simple navneet type thing? I can't even
imagine. As a result, my sign is mostly words, HENNA BODY ART,
etc... and a lil' stolen dingbat FastSigns thought would look cool.

So my question is: can someone help me out by emailing me some
already rendered designs... like in the Corel Draw program for
example (FastSigns suggestion, not mine, I don't have a clue). I
just would like one simplistic hand image.

I'm kinda freaking out because the Barrio district PoPo said I
wouldn't be allowed to post my large sign outside anymore, so I'm
having to put something together really fast that is small and can
hang inside the window where I work.

Even the most simplistic work would be better than paying out the
wazoo for FastSign's artists to render something for me.

If the work needs to be compensated, I don't mind doing that
either... if I have to pay some $ I'd rather give it to someone I
