i’m jealous of todd sanders

So, I was in Austin a few weeks ago, and somehow, found THIS! I’d read about this gallery, Roadhouse Relics, but never thought I’d actually have time during my whirl wind trip to make it over there… and then there it was, right in front of me as I crossed First Street… it was an artsy miracle.

All of these old vintage neon signs, are actually brand new neon signs designed and built to look old, by Austin artist Todd Sanders. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that I did my best to document a few of my favorites {some are posted above}, but one was missing. There was a piece that I’d seen/loved online that wasn’t up in the gallery that day. This is it:

A giant mason jar full of neon fireflies? Love.

    Where have all the fireflies gone? Extinct so now retro? Love, want the jar too.
