Ann Arbor street artist David Zinn  gets me squirrly!
Ann Arbor street artist David Zinn could draw on a notepad in his living room or on an exposed brick wall in some swanky bohemian loft. Instead, his canvas is public pavement, where he leaves his work for others to discover.
“That way, someone has the experience that some person took the time to do this completely pointless, joyful thing,” he says. Zinn, a faculty brat of The University of Michigan, was raised in the town where he draws his inimitable chalk characters. “Illustration is this very private act of creation, but because I do it on the sidewalk, it becomes communal,’ he says. In the city of Ann Arbor, it’s perfectly legal to draw on a public sidewalk with wash-away chalk. That’s not true everywhere.
