Anonymous artist duo with a penchant for chalk dust

Two seniors at the Columbus College of Art and Design have been sneaking into classrooms one night per week and creating incredible chalkboard art featuring famous quotations. Going by the moniker Dangerdust, they can be found on Twitter, Instagram, tumblr, and behance.

That's amazing! I pity the custodians.

I particularly enjoy their Twain piece.

Can't decide on my favorite --- either the Neil Degrasse Tyson or the Calvin & Hobbes.

I love this so much, but as someone who procrastinates with hand-lettering and has a dreaded statistics final tomorrow, it's a message I very much DO NOT WANT right now.

Surprised that the school still has blackboards. I haven't seen one in a long time.

How do they bear erasing them?

The two complete each masterpiece in one fell swoop (which can take up to 11 hours)

Only 11 hours?! To quote one of their own pieces, "It always seems impossible until it's done." -- Nelson Mandela

How do they bear erasing them?

seeing as how they kicked off with a Banksy quote and they're "vandalizing" chalkboards on a school campus, it's very probable that one of their main intentions for their art is to be ephemeral.

Campus security just can't wait to test out their new tasers on these despicable vandals.

This may come across as curmudgeonly, but I guess I don't really see the point of this. The art is technically impressive, sure, but most of the quotes are semi-inspirational stuff that wouldn't be out of place in my Facebook feed. I think the central idea is a good one, I just wish they were doing something more stimulating with it.
