Let's go to Las Vegas! Did you ever consider a career in Las Vegas Gaming Art?

creative art for slot machines

A booming industry often overlooked is the gaming industry ... no, I'm not talking about video or computer games, I'm talking about Las Vegas! I had the best time photographing these slot machine headers, I began trying to guess the base type fonts and the processes used to print these lighted headers! It's fun and fascinating!
