Sharpie on my Guitar


Sharpie permanent markers, about a week to finish (working time 10 - 15 hours)

Also check out my Ghibli Guitar Design: [link]

The front design (right) features a japanese wave, a dragon (symbol of my country and mascot of my old school), a tree and a girl. Truthfully, I just added the girl because I like drawing long hair. The quote says "Do what you love, fortune will follow." :heart:

The back design (left) features a phoenix (the counterpart of a dragon, in China), and floral/wing/ribbon designs inspired by the artwork of Julie Hill [link]

I have yet to add quotes to the ribbons. Any suggestions?

Loving it, beautiful work - I would suggest this quotation from Plato -
"Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything".

I'll give you a plug at our CRR  facebook page please pop along :-D  I suspect many of our guitarist friends would be only too happy to have images of this quality on their instruments. DW.

Very cool! I had thought about breaking out the Sharpies but never had the right guitar to do it to. As for quotes how about one of these;

"Dream like you'll live forever, live like you'll die today."- James Dean

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” –Dr. Forrest C. Shaklee

“Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.” - Unknown

Aloha, is beautifull and amaizing.

Did you used sand paper before the painting? for varnish removing? did you varnished at the end?

Hugs and sexy kisses, lol
