If you’ve ever thought that sidewalk chalk is just for children, think again. With the right artist ability, sidewalk chalk can be on par with any other artistic medium.

David Zinn is a professional artist. He had created everything from theatrical posters and business logos to restaurant placemats and bar coasters. While he makes a living as a freelance artist, he also enjoys creating art in his free time.

Zinn is inspired by a sunny day and a box of sidewalk chalk. When he sees imperfections on walls or in sidewalks, he envisions something much more creative and brings the vision to life with his chalk. Zinn told Bored Panda, “The honest truth about my art is that I am inspired by the absence of perfection as a possibility: between the irregularities of the stained concrete and the limited hours of available daylight outdoors, perfection is blessedly not an option. Instead, there is just the lunatic joy of finding the most satisfying option that exists within those limitations.”
