License Plate Art

The August issue of Country Living has an article about the Junk Gypsies – two sisters and their mom – and the tour bus they decorated for Miranda Lambert. There are some pictures of it here, and when I went to the JG website, they had several of the items that were used in the photo shoot available in their shop (I feel bad for Miranda that her bus couldn’t stay decorated the way they had it!).

One of the things they featured on the bus was a piece of art, made out of license plates. It’s made by Phillip Sikes, and available here on the JG site.

At first, I thought he must be the same artist that makes the license plate art that’s in the Sundance catalog, but that’s Aaron Foster. Aaron makes a map of the US out of plates (it’s $3895), and other pieces, like this 6’8″ Statue of Liberty. Although his large pieces are pretty expensive, he sells prints in his online shop.

There are pics on Flickr of more license plate art (by other artists) here and here, a Jeep covered with plates here, and Allison Strine makes charms from them, here.
