“It was something from the heart,” says Trish Dill, owner of Desert Signs (Phoenix). The “art car,” as it became known around the shop, was a wrap adapted from a 30 x 40-inch abstract painting for Michael Janzen, a local customer who had commissioned several fleet wraps from Desert Signs in the past. Janzen, a car aficionado and member of a Hyundai Genesis club, asked his daughter, artist Ariel Eichler, to create the artwork specifically to be turned into a wrap.
