Remember the Sharpie Lamborghini Gallardo from 2007? A Chevrolet Camaro has been given a similar treatment courtesy of Maryland-based professional pinstriper Chris Dunlop. Stepping away from his cans of paint and fine brushes, Dunlop has created two magnificently detailed Sharpie tapestries where the original pinstripes would have been.

According to LSX TV, Dunlop says this Camaro is the fourth car he's decorated like this, and others have followed. Ten pens gave their lives to the cause of art, as well as a few layers of clearcoat to make sure the ink remains permanent. If you happen to think you could do this at home to your own ride, have a look at the detail shots in the gallery – a Sharpie isn't just a marker in Dunlop's hands.

        And heavy use of a respirator lol. Could you imagine the fumes coming off of that car? Holy crap. Forget getting high off of them. That's cause for brain damage.

      I'm surprised that there are people who didn't complain that this was done on a base-model Camaro... (not even an RS)

        The SS also has a ram-air scoop at the front.

        Well, maybe an RS - the rear's debadged, but it does look like there are some halo projectors in the headlights...

      My10-year old did something similar with a styrofoam cup and four different color Sharpies. He made a bunch of weird shapes and colored them in. So why doesn't he have an article somewhere? ;) What a waste of time. Just like all the other "art cars" that look like they were done by an elementary student.

        Show me some better art than this guy, and I'll give you props. Until then, I wouldn't criticize someone else's drawings.

      It's impressive, but it just doesn't look good on a car.

      Hate to see the insurance policy rate for that 'art car'

        Probably as much as any car with a customized paint job.

      I saw this guy working on the Fiero he mentions at a local cruise in here in MD. Pretty amazing watching him work. He just flies through it.

      This makes me wonder what Bumblebee would look like if he was a Decepticon.
