There are a ton of creative things to do with markers. This gallery goes through everything from marker-drawn body art to decorating with Sharpies and bags made of drawing utensils.

The next time someone tells you that you need expensive art supplies, you should respectfully decline and tell them you'll stick to your $2 Sharpie.

Implications - Even something as fundamentally simple as a marker can be endlessly reinvented with a bit of creativity, and these trends highlight the fact that company's need not reinvent the wheel in order to innovate. By looking beyond the most obvious uses of an every day tool, businesses can find new and exciting ways to turn the ordinary into something that makes the lives of consumers easier and more interesting.
