Car Covered in Chalkboard Paint Invites People to Draw On It

Chalkboard paint is often used to turn a wall in an office or school into a chalkboard, but college student Philip Romano decided to cover his 2004 Hyundai Elantra in the black matte material to transform his vehicle into an art project on wheels. Equipping the car with a vanity plate that reads “DRAWONME,” Romano makes sure to further entice passersby with plenty of chalk, inviting them to draw on the mobile blackboard, whenever he parks his car.

He has found great success in getting people to cover the car, from top to bottom, in colorful drawings and text (some saying “Thanks for this”). The 20-year-old has left his car in various neighborhoods throughout New York, but gained great recognition once he parked it out in from of MoMA, where the line to draw on it reportedly went around the block. Since then, Romano’s own mother has taken photos of people participating in the ongoing project and uploaded them to Imgur.
