I'm thinking of doing a paintjob on one of my frames. But all I can think of is camo, which I think may be a bit boring. Any one got any ideas? :D

Powdercoat it white and do some of your own unique Sharpie art:

I've played around with it a bit in photoshop, but nothing really worked for me and it always ended being camo in different colours.

I don't have any pics of mine but here's one of the web (basically the same).

And as for the sharpie art, I know longer have the patience for that sort of thing :lol:

Camo is very easy to do and maintain.

Mondrian is a great idea :D And would be quite simple too.

And if I do camo I would do it as patches like this;
