Hingst’s Sign Post: Pinstriping Tips from Tramp Warner

For more than forty years, John “Tramp” Warner has been painting cartoons and pinstriping. In 2008, his dedication to his craft was recognized by his peers, when he was presented with the lifetime achievement award at the Milwaukee Pinstripe Legend charity event.
