    Default A Hobby of Mine - sharpie art

    Back when I owned my Eclipse there was a guy that used a Sharpie to draw designs on his car then clear over it. This inspired me to try too. Turns out I was pretty good at it! I've done everything from bikes to shoes in Sharpie. Here are a few pictures to show you guys what I mean.

    Inspiration Car:


    My Eclipse Head-unit:


    Various other items:
    (24"x36" board)

    Toms



    Anybody else got any hobby similar to this?

    That's some pretty cool stuff. About the closest I come is chiseling runic designs in knife blades I'm making and carving knotwork in leather.

    How does it hold up to weather and driving under the clearcoat?

    The knife carving sounds quite interesting! That's not my car so I couldn't tell you about the hold up on it...

    I once helped some buddies paint their circa 1959 International pickup with 15 cans of continental blue spray paint. We did not even wash it. Looked better than when we started but I would not call it a work of art....LOL
