What got me started in this entire journey with my own art car the Mercedes Pens and now with Art Car Central was a book called “Art Cars: the cars, the artists, the obsession, the craft” by Harrod Blank. I walked into the library one day and browsing the car section when I came upon the most amazing book I had seen in a long time. In it was filled with images of people who had decorated their cars with, glued objects, car modifications and everything in between. I read that book for a solid six weeks and then had to return it.
In it there are amazing photos of the cars, the artists who create them and the story behind every creation. Many of the cars in the book I have written about here on Art Car Central like: The Mondrian Mobile. Carthedral,
I fell in love with this amazing art form and two years later the idea to glue pens on my Mercedes came to me one morning.
