Sharpie, Art, Mustang, Oh My!
Out on the edges of car customizing lives a couple of artists whose trade includes using regular black Sharpie markers to create pieces of art. Chris Dunlop
may be the best-known marker in the pack, and this is his latest work, a Sharpie-styled 1999 Ford Mustang GT that took about 50 hours of freehand drawing to finish.
Dunlop was a practiced pinstripe artist who took notice in 2010 after a Miami artist gave a complete Sharpie makeover to a Lamborghini Gallardo.
There's several benefits to using Sharpies: They're cheap, come in a few widths and will last years when protected with clear-coat paint. The biggest drawback is that there's no do-overs; once the ink's down, it's not coming off.
Is this Sharpie Mustang a must or a bust?
