David Zinn’s Quirky Chalk and Charcoal Characters on the Streets of Ann Arbor

top

Since 2001, artist and illustrator David Zinn has stalked the streets of Ann Arbor, Michigan, creating temporary illustrations with chalk and charcoal. Zinn improvises each piece on the spot and makes use of found objects, street fixtures, and stairsteps to create trompe l’oeil illusions. These are some of our favorite pieces from the last few months, but you can see plenty more on Facebook and in his 2013 book Lost & Unfounded: Street Art by David Zinn. All photos courtesy the artist. (via Street Art Utopia)

Children’s Book Characters Arm Themselves for the Looming Fairytale Apocalypse

As if loose pages from an old Disney script were accidentally left on the set of Terminator 3, these children’s book and cartoon characters including Whinnie the Pooh, Piglet, Daffy Duck and others have clearly armed themselves for the looming fairytale apocalypse. These welded stainless steel plate sculptures are by Korean artist So Hyun Woo, many of which are from his July exhibition at Song Eun Art Space aptly titled Cruel Fairy Tales 3. My hunch is that among regular readers of Colossal, for all the people who find these unbelievably wrong or plain weird, there will be an equal sized group who finds them juuuuust right.
