Todd Sanders' Neon & Metal Studio
1720 S. First, 512/443-7809
Todd collects old ramshackled signage and turns them into modern tributes to a time gone by. His compound is at the corner of S. First & Annie. Yeah, that's his delicious red neon Austin sign which glows right around the corner from the well-known "Welcome to Austin" mural. And that "Old South Austin" sign on Jovita's? And Mercury's head in the Continental Club? Yup, those are Todd's. How about the Threadgill's back room filled with glowing Austin history like a working Nighthawk sign and the majestic Twin Oaks? Thank Todd, y'all.
