I love mid-century design, and I think I’m far from alone in that. I also love those particularly American road-side attractions that are few and far between these days. I have been to The Thing! and to Roswell, thoroughly enjoying both. (If you, like me, love this kind of thing I have a YouTube channel you might like. The Carpetbagger has turned his love of road-side weirdness into a great channel and thanks to him I have a lot more spots added to my bucket list of weirdness I would like to one day visit.)
All of these loves, including my love of making miniatures, came together to create this sign. I imagined what it would be like if Area 51 had been advertised like any other odd South-Western tourist trap.
I hope you like it, I made it a while ago and I guess I just never bothered to share it. I keep meaning to build a little diorama or at least get a proper frame, but currently, it just hangs on my wall above my desk, because it is one of the few things I’ve made that I actually like to have on display.
