David Zinn has been featured in Pondly before but we just can’t get enough of his zany chalk art. This time, we’ve featured a number of his most recent work that has cropped up all over Ann Arbor, Michigan. David draws his characters on the spot, using found objects, street fixtures, and even random cracks on the sidewalk. Using trompe l’oeil illusion, he incorporates his characters into the surface on which they are drawn. Zinn started his craft way back in 2001. It started out as an excuse to linger outdoors which eventually evolved to a profitable venture. The recurring characters in his work are Sluggo, a bright green monster with stalk eyes and irreverent habits; Philomena, a phlegmatic flying pig; and a number of rather adorable mice.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
