My inartistic mind can't even fathom the skill and patience required to create something like the Sharpie Miata. This car's exterior took 22 days to draw and over $100 in Sharpie markers.

Mike Niemann is the artist behind the Sharpie Miata. His work manages to breathe life into what otherwise would have been just another aging Miata zipping down the street. Check out this Sharpie creation in the featured gallery.
