Car Design Reimagined with Minimalist Car Art – Blackprints

Lamborghini Countach Blackprints

Seriously, this crowd-funding thing is awesome. Before now, anybody wanting to start a business or project would need a crapload of their own money or funded by seed capital. It’s not that way anymore, and Sabrina Chun from San Francisco is a perfect example of this.

Sabrina started a campaign on the popular crowdfunding website Kickstarter.com only two days ago called Blackprint Designs. She chose eight cars that she felt has a significance in history and pop culture and turned them in minimalist designs in inverse black and white, which give a unique look to iconic cars we’re all familiar with, putting them into a new light.

The project was started only two days ago on 02 April, 2013, and to get funded for the project to continue, Sabrina needed to raise $5,000. There are various levels that anyone can contribute, and most of them involve getting your choice of various sizes of the art itself, at a reduced pre-order cost. At the time of this writing, the Blackprints project has $36,341 with 590 people backing it. Perhaps instead of worrying about whether the project would be funded, she’s worried more about whether or not she can fulfill so many requests!

The cars available:

1. Porsche 911
2. ’67 Mustang GT500
3. DeLorean DMC-12 from “Back to the Future”
4. Volkswagen Microbus
5. Shelby Cobra
6. Lamborghini Countach
7. Ford Model T
8. Ghostbusters Ecto-1

All prints are on eco-friendly 80lb card stock with a matte finish using recycled paper and soybean-based ink. Now to decide which one to get. I’m especially loving the Countach, Cobra, and GT500, but I don’t know if I could pass up the Ghostbuster’s Ecto-1.

Check out the Blackprints Kickstarter page or the official Blackprint Design website for more info and to order a print or support the project.

Sabrina hasn’t specified whether or not she’d be doing more designs of other cars, but at this rate of success, I don’t see why she wouldn’t.

About The Author

I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006 to share my love of cars. My favorites include the Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT and Koenigsegg CCX, and I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the sexiest cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I like imports – Nissan, Audi, Subaru… I love my Pearl Yellow (don’t judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX TT and plan to get it to around 550 HP one day. I’m also an avid world traveler and love rock climbing.
