New Studio Sign

My studio building, at 1890 Bryant Street in San Francisco, will be open to the public this weekend as part of Mission Open Studios. My space is at the end of a long lobby and the last few times I have opened I have noticed that some visitors didn't realize that there was a large studio full of fabulous work at the end of the lobby. I needed a sign to pull them in!

So I decided to make one..... My process was similar to my painting process except for the addition of lights. I had fun making it!

Step 1 - Under-painting on plywood panel....

Step 2 - Cut out arrow shape.
Apply text leaving background showing through...

Step 3 - Apply backing frame.
Drill fifty holes and push through fifty christmas lights....

Step 4 - Hang sign outside studio door and connect to power.
