News from the world of Brand Rex: I was saddened to learn that a 55-year old company in Miami, Fla., named Rex Art is shutting its doors .
Rex Art, in business for 55 years and once one of the largest art supply retailers in the southeast, will close the store on Christmas Eve. For good.
When I saw that item, I thought I was going to have to alert Rex Sorgatz and start a protest or something. However, I am happy to report the rest of the story:
Luckily, most of Rex Art’s 15 employees will keep their jobs. That’s because Lonny, 37, and Katrina, 34, will continue to run their Internet business, www.rexart.com .

Update: Rex Sorgatz just sent me this link to his Flickr set of Rex signs . I’m inspired. Look for the flickr tag "rexbrand" coming soon.
