I think we may be developing an affinity for decor developed with sharpies. Who knew? You all may harken back to the luxurious sharpie Lamborghini we posted a couple of months ago and are still very much drooling over. Now we have a second sharpie spotting that we just have to show you (if we get a third it will officially be a trend). My brother sent me this link last week and, despite the icky furniture, this room is pretty awesome:
Charlie Kratzer of Kentucky covered every square inch of wall space in his basement with his own sharpie art. For $10 worth of marker, Kratzer depicts
Georges Seurat's Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. There is Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill, and the Cornell Law School, of which Kratzer is an alumnus. There is Kratzer's dad. There is the harlequin pattern — alluded to in culinary culture today by the Panera bread bag — and a fake fireplace facing a real one.
There are both The Walrus and the Carpenter (from Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There), and William Shakespeare. The Marx Brothers peer around a corner. A flip-top garbage can is transformed via marker art into Star Wars'plucky little beeper R2D2.

Oh, and, P.S. I'm sorry, but that's probably my very favorite post title eva
