LANSING, Ill. (September 20, 2020) – Following our September 14 post sharing some of Bill Blanchard’s summer chalk art, Blanchard emailed to add this information about his “Deliveries” piece: “The FedEx driver said he took a photo of the delivery trucks to show his friends. He told me he sees lots of sidewalk chalk drawings on his route and could fill his phone up with images. So you may find there are many others out there making sidewalk art.”
Blanchard also included several additional images of drawings from this summer.
