Pierre Tardif, traditional sign painter

Quebec City's Pierre Tardif found his passion early on in life, and he's among the few who have found a way to carve out a niche for it. He's a traditional sign painter, using the stroke of a brush to evoke eras of the past. 

Looking for a logo for your band that plays tunes from the 1950s? Call up Pierre. Want gold leaf detailing on your steam engine firetruck from the 1870s? He's your man.

Our Julia Caron stopped by his workshop to find out more about the not so long lost art of sign painting.
