Here is an example of Brune's work, drawn in chalk at Riverside Park. These familiar cartoon creatures are Brune's signature. "I enjoy the cartoon feel of my work because it has the tendency to portray the childish tone to show the youthfulness in imagination while the messages involved in my work can be political, thought-provoking, or simple nice to think about," he said. "I make my art to correspond to the thoughts of many different kinds of audience."

Here, Brune is working on his art. He said he prefers the outdoors to indoors, explaining, "The difference is that while being outside I have much more to look at, much more space to roam and I can really let my mind wander. Outside in the open, everything is always moving and changing. Rarely will the same person walk past me outside, and in every new person I find a new idea, a new inspiration. It's a very free style of art which I cherish."

The artist, Isaac Brune, creates chalk art in Riverside Park. He explained that his art is inspired by everyday activities that he encounters on a day-to-day basis. "I get all of my ideas from the world around me," he said. "There is so much to take in sometimes that anything really can inspire me. Emotions play a big part in my art because they are often so hard to portray, which makes them such a challenge to express artistically, but I try anyway. When people look at my art and smile or talk to me about what they thought of it, what they took from it in their own imagination, that really inspires me. "
