The R U What I Am Looking For? sign epitomizes the playful sage of Sloop Jones. It is gentle and sweet, perplexing, provoking, and eternally optimistic.
Two questions are posed that must be asked together. For if you ask, “Are you what I am looking for?” you also must ask yourself, “What am I looking for?”
These fundamental life questions require depth and reflection. But the shortened, almost juvenile form of R U adds levity to their potential weight.
Who has not felt this way before? Who can not relate to this longing, this ache, this hope in the face of disappointment and setback?
Deep thoughts contained here in this seven word riddle.
Deep thoughts paired with the brightest, most cheerful of palettes.
How can the combinations of orange and pink not give your happy level a little boost? Especially when bumping up next to an equally appealing marriage of yellow and electric blue?
The lettering is cautious and curious, yet brave. The one backwards question mark adds an extra touch of whimsy.
This is Sloop at his most philosophical, yet sacrificing none of his signature colorful fun.
