Crowdfunding Launches Minimalist Artist Into Success Sabrina Chun reimagines classic car art with inverse black and white illustrations
SAN FRANCISCO, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Crowdfunding launches an artist into success who redefines car art. Sabrina Chun, http://bit.ly/175bnfm, the mastermind behind Blackprints, www.blackprintdesign.com, has had a deep appreciation for auto aesthetic since the age of five. She has spent years at car shows and track meets capturing her favorite models with her camera. In March 2013 she decided to combine her passion for cars with her other passion of art design by translating her photographs into minimalistic art prints, http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sabrinachun/blackprints-car-designs-reimagined.
With little money to make her vision a reality, Chun looked to Kickstarter for support, and within 24 hours her project was funded, http://bit.ly/11yYAzj. Blackprints are black and white illustrations of beloved classic cars in print form. These elegant prints allow you to see iconic cars in a different light by the way Chun accents the raw lines that communicate the original designers' vision. The simplicity and sleekness of Blackprints allows for a seamless addition to your living room, office, bedroom and even garage. Currently Blackprints are available in nine classic designs, including the Porsche 911, '67 Mustang GT500, DeLorean, Volkswagen Microbus, 427 AC Cobra, Lamborghini Countach, BMW E30, Ford GT 40 and Ghostbuster Ecto-1.
"I believe that each and every single car has a story behind them…behind the shape, form, power, performance, feel and sound," says Chun. "Blackprints are how I capture that story and more in a minimal and elegant fashion."
Blackprints are available, http://blackprintdesign.com/preorder, in two sizes, including mini (6" x 9") and jumbo (24" x 38") and may be purchased individually ($39 or $79 respectively) or in bundles ($159 and up). Each print is lasered onto an 80 lb recycled paper card stock with soybean-based ink and solvent. These photograph-quality prints all come in a matte finish.

Sabrina Chun founded Blackprints in March 2013 to combine her passion for cars and art. She uses the hundreds of car photos she's taken, as well as die-cast car models for inspiration. Chun takes the strongest attributes of each car using one, or a composition of several, images to create a Blackprint. The result is an elegant black and white silhouette print that captures the true essence of our favorite classic cars.
