For the past 13 years, street artist and illustrator David Zinn has been making his neighborhood a little bit brighter with temporary art. His whimsical chalk art uses the sidewalk, brick buildings, and cement walls as canvases for his little creatures to come to life. Although there is only one angle that reveals
the 3D nature of his characters, the people of Ann Arbor are often rewarded for looking down at the ground. His characters include fish, mice, monsters, a flying pig named Philomena, and a green alien named Sluggo, who boasts 3,409 fans on Facebook.
Zinn has compiled some of his best chalk works in a book called Lost & Unfounded: Street Art by David Zinn. Although the limited edition paperback versions are sold out, he is still selling digital versions of the book. To fill your feed with street art to smile about, follow David Zinn on Facebook.
