Chalk Luigi by yooki42 Chalk Luigi by yooki42
Thisis a chalk drawing I did on the wall of the math building at my college. A friend of mine and I got together and did this early in the morning. It took us about an hour and a half to two hours (neither of us happened to keep track). We split the bricks each into square sized blocks and then used the squares as pixels to redraw the art. Despite the lack of people in this photo, this is a rather high traffic are in my school.
We observed a large number of people laughing and pointing at Luigi as they walked by. Everyone enjoyed it a great deal. Almost anyone with a camera phone took a picture of it, and many posed next to him to get the picture taken. Nobody on campus knows who did it, and I think the mystery adds to the fun.
I'm glad we were able to bring such happiness to my classmates at UTA.

The mystery of it is so much fun for me. I do my drawings in high traffic areas but usually in the middle of the night so very few people actually see me doing it. I love going back the next day and just watching people pass by and snap pics and such. It entertains me to know that no one who stops to take a pic suspects that the random chubby guy at sitting on that bench is the guy that did this thing, lol.

So Awesome. You've inspired me. I plan to ask the people at a local bar with a great brick wall, if I can do some pixel art. Bavo for this, you've inspired me to do great works.

That is so supreme! The effort shows!

And with something as easy-going as Chalk too! Wonderful to admire, but comes off on it's own with water, nothing particularly controversial about that. I love your medium!

I did some stenciling that was similar to this...kinda...well the public thing was similar lol. I loved the reactions of the people who saw it and only me and my friend that was looking out know who did it.

Keep up the fun stuff man.

High Five! We want to do another one sometime this year, but we heard the UTA police got real mad about this, so we have to find a time to do it at night.

This is what we need with our writers of today...no more boring, mindless ego tags. graffiti needs to evolve..we need people to CONTRIBUTE to our cities...interact with its architecture...make people laugh....keep it up man....remember there are a lot of other objects in the city...not just walls...... think outside the box.
