Ladies and gentlemen, meet Maggie Stiefvater, professional artist and musician, New York Times best-selling author and Mitsubishi Evo owner. Because, as she writes, "In my latest novel, The Dream Thieves, a character drives a car that looks just like mine. Only there's a knife painted on the side of his," she decided to graffiti a knife on the side of hers.

And that's how you get the time-lapse video below of Stiefvater, a few aerosol cans and a lot of stencils enjoying a sunny day in the park.

      And car's value drops $10,000 in 3:25.

        It drops even faster when you sign the dotted line to purchase it from the dealer :)

      She should stick to writing.

        After that disaster there's no reason to assume her books are any better

      I was able to say 'stop' a few times in the first 45 seconds.

      I'd bet money that's Plastidip, which just peels off after it dries. Around 1:10 - 1:11 you can see the blue can with a hand on it...

        If it's Plastidip, then all is well with the world.

        Okay, I just stopped the video at 1:10 and compared the can to my own can of Plastidip. It is unmistakeably the same... thank god.

      I know this was done in less than a day and with rattle cans, but I just think it looks a bit shoddy... The section by the wheel arch looks good but the rest is just ehhh. Theres also a part of me that is kind of screaming inside for painting up a good looking evo like that. Its her car so she can do what she wants with it but I sure as hell wouldn't do that.

        Or mom and dad paid for it. Based on her "art" skills, I doubt she's making good enough money to pay for it on her own.

      It looks like a car from Fast and Furious 1, but worse.

      Cool in that it reminds me of Need For Speed Underground. On one hand, I would have taken more time to get sharp edges and detailed shadowing on the design, and used primer so it would hold, but on the other hand, with that level of detail, you're getting into some serious Fast and Furious 1 stuff...
