Mario Sharpie-Art Backpack by mattmcmanis Mario Sharpie-Art Backpack by mattmcmanis
Done with a colored sharpie set I got at Target for $5 on sale, on a pure white JanSport backpack. I tore the logo off.

I spent about 4 days designing and drawing.

This is seriously cool!

What would you suggest to 'seal' the ink on the fabric with or is it waterproof?

this has inspired me to decorate a backpack on Pokemon! did you use ultra fine point sharpies? also, did you draw straight on the backpack with sharpie or did you outline with pencil first? =o

Haha, well I sprayed it with clear paint (scotch guard will make it bleed), so I hope it would hold up, at least in rain.

The stuff you sprayed it with..Was it like a seel? Because I got commisioned to make someone some custom mario shoes, that I use sharpies to color and stuff. And I was wondering if I should put a seel on it, but I'm afraid the seel will make it bleed..

I used clear acrylic spray paint in a rattle can you can find at the store. Spray very lightly, let dry, coat a few times.

Great job! :wow: I have done hi-tops before, but nothing as big as a backpack. What kind of sealant did you use? It is a very impressive piece, and I am sure you used the top protection for it! :clap:
