At the Columbus College of Art and Design, two college students have gone rogue - but publicly at least, no one's letting on which two. The anonymous duo, who go by the name Dangerdust, sneak into a classroom each Sunday or Monday and create a masterpiece out of nothing but chalk. All we could manage at school was a speed knob.
The pair are both seniors in Advertising & Graphic Design, but somehow they manage to spare the brainpower and time to create these chalkboard works of art - some taking 11 hours to complete.
You just have to marvel at the technique, the breadth of styles, the thinking that's gone into it and the commitment and planning.
“When you’re working on long extended projects for graphic design classes it’s easy to… lose motivation,” they said. “I think we’re tired of the computer, and [chalking] gives us motivation.”
“I remember the first couple we did, I didn’t think anything was going to happen, [but] people were like, ‘Yeah, I’ve seen that on Instagram!’” they remembered. “We get so giddy over 10 likes on Instagram.”
