  • You show a real mastery with your work. Strangely relaxing to watch. Like!

  • Shingo Annen

    well done!

  • Incredible. It feels so peaceful, but it’s a trap! This must be the most difficult job in the world! Makes people stop whining about their work.

    Who didn’t absolutely loved the part with the tube boxes? And with BoC on top? Killer.

  • Andrew

    A beautiful video of such an awesome craft!

  • Mesmerizing and lovely. Neon signs are incredible.
