Mystery Students Create Chalkboard Masterpieces


Leaving a ripe chalk alongside an unmanned chalkboard is just asking for a janitor/genius to solve the greatest equations of our time.

Not at the Columbus College Of Art, however, where two senior ad & graphic design students known collectively as Dangerdust, have been sneaking into classes after hours to covertly create spellbinding works with chalk, bringing alive some of the greatest advice of our time.

The weekly works, typically done on a Sunday or Monday, range from the advice of Mark Twain,fantasy imagery of J.M Barrie's Peter Pan, to a host of intricately detailed classic book covers. You can't hear us but we're applauding.

If there were ever a reason not to be late for class, you're looking at it.
