stole my thoughts! i wouldnt mind one giant stone Castle to keep the mobs out.
and to whoever was asking, they will attack lit places, but they wont spawn there. they only spawn in a 5 block grid from the spawner.

1) get the image you want
2) open it with Paint and enable grids
3) resize to the pixel height you want (i wanted a 20-block high flag, so 20px)
4) zoom in and edit until it looks right.
i enlarged this so i could see the grids better when i was done:
