Instead of hiring someone to decorate a van, Imgur user Nabo embarked on the 'My Sharpied Van' project where a sign was placed outside to invite people in to draw. Once inside, generous souls drew intricate and beautiful designs on the Volkswagen.

With a sign that read "Help sharpie the van," Nabo invited people into the garage. Once inside, people were provided with permanent markers in order to draw to their heart's content. Since the van is white, spontaneous artists had a lot of clean canvas to work with.

With the markers used being exclusively black, passing strangers turned the van into a monochromatic masterpiece. Though unlikely, Nabo claimed that many of the strangers who came in to draw weren't professional artists. Stats for Crowdsourced Van Designs Trending: Older & Chilly
