A dirty, dusty car window is an irresistible canvas for a lot of people. But mostly they'll just write "wash me" on it and call it a day.

On his website, artist Scott Wade admits he started out that way, many years ago.

But somewhere along the way, the artist, who lives on a long and dusty dirt road, went from writing with a finger to creating full-fledged works of art on dusty car windows.

He first discovered the possibilities of a dirty windshield when he was doodling with his finger while chewing on a popsicle stick.

The stick got a little bit feathered, he tried drawing with it, and voila: he realized he could create something intricate and detailed in the dust.

From there, he switched to paintbrushes, and mastered the art of "dirty car art."

Scott has been called "the Da Vinci of Dust" and the "Dirty Car Artist," and featured on TV shows, online, and in print. He even starred in a music video that included some of his work.

In the video below, Scott reflects on his (slightly strange) career path, and says he was shocked to see how many people wanted to look at "dirty pictures on the internet":
