I was leaving a coffee shop and spotted this in the parking lot. I don't know what the story is, but it may be one of my more unusual handwriting finds as far as surface. It was not an art car - this was the only writing on it.
I can also tell you from experience, that the sharpies will fade over time. I had an idea to do a "quote car" art car once, and realized there was a big flaw in the plan that sharpies wouldn't last in the sun!
I met a young man, McCartney Johnson, who makes books and asks people he meets to write in them. We had a serendipitous meeting and he allowed me to take photos of some of the pages of his book. He has amassed 17 of them in about a year and a half.
Mader's Restaurant in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has been in business since 1902. Their hallway is filled with notes from people who have enjoyed their food over the years. We first discovered their sauerbraten in June of 2014. It's worth making a special trip for!
