I was thinking about making something like the walk/don't walk signs at crosswalks, the ones with a person walking juxtaposed by a hand. I think it is funny that the hand symbolizes "don't walk." I thought of making a swim/don't swim sign with a person swimming juxtaposed by a shark fin sticking out of the water. Then just to get started and test things out I just made a shark.
It isn't working yet. I need to solder the wires on the back side and connect the battery pack. So far I just have the LED's punched through the foamcore. I used a make shift awl (a needle jammed in an exact-o knife handle) and poked holes in the foamcore where I wanted to put LED's. You can still kind of see my sketch underneath the LED's.
I'm really excited about making some LED graffiti. If you want to get into this drop me a line. It is really simple and easy to do and cheap. 100 LED's for $2.
