Studio City will never be the same since Ancient England's King Edward III is now the prominent male gracing two walls. As a Native Briton stated, "This place is not like a traditional British Pub - it is over the top!" And there he is, a younger Olde King Edward III himself, heir to thrones of both England and France during his reign, looking down on everyone showing up!

Commissioned to create a World Class image for this King's Head, Dennis Knicely, Master Sign Maker, Artist, Designer and Gold Leaf specialist literally "went to town".

Original logo for Ye Olde Kings Head of Santa Monica, CAFirst, we checked what exists at the original location from 1974 in Santa Monica, CA and decided the "Olde King" looked dated and tired, so with a little research we found a younger and much more lively looking King Edward III,

Next was the process of creating a King, and the owners did not want ink jet print. This one was to be hand painted all the way. After a week of tweaking my original layout, spending days enlarging our image to 5 feet wide by 8 feet tall, then painted from scaffold / ladder, Edward III was finally completed!...
