I’ve always loved those vintage style marquee bulb signs that used to appear on casinos and theaters, illuminating words shapes with hundreds on incandescent lights. A few weeks ago I decided to have a go at making my own using some spare sheets of plywood and a string of LEDs hacked together with a motion sensor. My completed arrow bulb sign now proudly sits at the top of the staircase in our house and lights the way whenever someone walks past it. I collected a bunch of photographs during the project, so here’s a little write up of the making of my DIY vintage bulb sign.

I had some fun in the woods with the Slo-Mo mode on my iPhone and my new medieval arrows.
Fun fact: The background music is Justin Bieber slowed down by 800%. The same song used during the slow motion scene at the end of the movie Dredd.

Now the weather is turning nice I’ve been enjoying a little archery practice in the local woods. This time I took my GoPro to capture some clips and edited together an overly dramatic movie.
I love traditional archery that uses instinctive shooting over any kinds of sights. I use a 35# Buck Trail Black Hawk flatbow.
