Some LOTUS "art work"

I have been working on dressing up my garage. Its the place in the house that my wife will let me do whatever I want to. So I thought some "art" work on the walls would be a nice touch. I will follow it up with some framed pictures and other Lotus memorabilia. I think this turned out sweet and wanted to share it with everyone here. I am by no means an artist but like to be creative, sometimes it works out and others not so well.

So what do you all think?

Jamaican bobsled nice! Well after I painted the walls some friends thought I did it for the Green Bay Packers. I had to explain to them that it was the Lotus colors.

+1

the lettering looks like it took a while; the frame looks like it took 5 mins tops.

The frame gives it a arty/ industrial edge . Sign would be a little flat without it , leave as is IMO.

That was my thinking. I like the industrialness of the frame.

Thank you.

I agree with the idea and concept and I probably would've done something like it myself... but as-is and in such a clean garage with painted walls etc (instead of brick or concrete) it almost looks like it was leftover from the garage door rails. I'd definitely like to have some Lotus artwork/paraphernalia in my garage and some cool letters might be just what I need
