Dougie Kerr is considered a Toronto legend, and he has been painting signs since the 60s. When he first moved to Canada in the 70s, his first job was painting totem poles. He is now one of the two only sign-makers at Honest Ed's, the most iconic department store in Toronto. He does a variety of in-store signage, sometimes producing 40-50 hand-painted signs a day.
