We entered the Pimp my cart contest from Unshelved the library themed cartoon strip. Elsa said we could do what ever we wanted to one of the black carts so we did. To enter the contest you had to take a working library cart and pimp it out with customizations. We decided to go with a gangster theme and a tribute to old school rappers. Chris painted the cart a pimp purple and Ashley, Marianne and I went to work with the markers and felt to do it up.
The cart has working lights, gang tats, a shitload of leopard, a custom plate, pimp clock on a platinum style chain and of course a working steering wheel.
The contest will be judged after the ALA conference so I will keep you posted on the progress.
So without further adieu here is the Othmer Library Pimp Cart 2007!
