I have been doing a lot of art for Trader Joe's lately. After the "Butcher Shop of Light" I proceeded to the "New Items" sign, featuring a clipper ship loaded with tasty treasures. This is the third time in my tenure at TJ's that I have done the "New Items" sign. The yellow sign at the top which says "New Items" reminded many of my co-workers of a shark's fin but it is really a triangular sail. I like that shape, the triangle with bent sides. The New Items sign is now in place but the lower part of the sign, with the blue waves, is currently blocked from view by many boxes of TJ's very popular Pumpkin Bread and Muffin Mix.
