"Evan Voyles was born and raised in Austin, Texas, with much of his youth spent at his family's Lazy V Ranch in the nearby Hill Country. He is a cum laude graduate of Yale University, with a degree in Intensive English. Trained to tear down, analyze, and rebuild literature, Voyles instead applied his talent to the unintentional poetry and iconic imagery of classic American roadside signage. His careers as both signmaker and artist have been guided by this interest.
Before resettling in Texas, Voyles lived on both the East and West coasts, and has travelled extensively through every state in between. Voyles' behind-the-wheel observations of the passing landscape take the form of notes, photographs, and sketches. Over time these notes etc. evolve into either signs or artworks.
Built under the aegis of his business The Neon Jungle, most of Voyles' award-winning signs may be seen on the streets of Austin, Texas. Independant music venues, restaurants, boutiques, theatres, and advertising agencies are the core of his clientele. He has also placed work from New York to Los Angeles, and from Switzerland to Japan"
