Sanders Gibbs, Superhero at Large
Up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane — it’s Sanders! Austinites from all over the city regularly travel down south to meet with Sanders, the super skilled, superhero of paint. Readers of this very blog have even benefited from his knowledge by taking advantage of Sanders’ expertise in our Ask Sanders column. And today this interview I conducted with him near the start of our working relationship is being featured over here by Benjamin Moore.
That’s because Sanders is the man.
Karly and I have worked with Sanders for years, and without his super help, I’m not sure either of us would have ever painted a single wall. But just look how awesome our houses turned out:
Karly’s nursery — a symphony in Harbor Gray (and lots of other colors).
My house — painted with Abalone gray and BM’s gold metallic paint.
Did I mention that Sanders is also a nice guy and fun to hang out with?
Here he is with Ike when Ike was just a little shrimp. Sanders has two kids of his own, including a six month old, so he never gets mad when Ike won’t stop messing with the water dispenser at the store.
If you don’t live in Austin — well you’re missing out on Sanders’ charm, that’s for sure. But you can still write in with your questions, which we will review for inclusion in our ongoing Ask Sanders column. Just drop us a line at email@example.com and we’ll see what we can do.
See? Sanders transcends space and time. He really is a superhero.
