“Texas-based gallery of the neon artist Todd Sanders”

Todd Sanders is an Austin, Texas based artist who specializes in vintage-inspired neon designs. Educated in the original techniques of sign making, each of his works are made by hand, without the use of computer aided design. His award winning pieces have appeared in The Museum of Neon Art, Robert Rodriguez films, Esquire, Texas Monthly, and Southern Living. Celebrity clientele includes Shepard Fairey, Norah Jones, Willie Nelson and ZZ Top. With a personal collection of hundreds of old neon sign magazines and books from the 1920s through 1960s, Todd has given himself a masters education in neon art through rigorous study and dedication to the craft. With almost two decades of experience, his knowledge of typography, style, and craftsmanship of vintage signs is uniquely self-taught. Each painstaking step – from sketching, to creating the metal, neon and paint patterns, to custom weathering and patina – creates a work of art that pays homage to the past without sacrificing modern sensibilities. Americana enthusiasts, art collectors and commercial advertisers consistently turn to Todd. By preserving this unique American tradition, Todd Sanders is considered a world class artist and a Texas legend.

A classic photo op. However, you should stop by the Austin Graffiti Wall as you pass through for an epic photo backdrop.

One of the best photo ops in Austin! Yes, I know it's just a painted wall, but it's so cute! I took a picture of my 11-month-year-old little boy in front and it's such a cute postcard from our Texas trip. Totally worth a stop!
