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. "

    I bet this artist wrote his own comment as” Scott Schuste” I feel sad
    if one is so miserable that a kid like chalk scribble can make one feel
    uplifted ,Yeah one can think this “work” stinks and still have a great life
    only a teenager would put down someone that has an opposite opinion
    of waht in their estimation is art ,good or bad .

    1. Scott Shuster says:

      No, M36, I am not Isaac, and don’t know him. I am truly a real human being named Scott Shuster who has independently commented here after reading the article and the remarks of others.

      Feeling that the posted public comments did not represent my view and also finding them to be unkind toward the artist, I chimed in with my thoughts on both the artistic initiative and the remarks of others.

      Regarding your suggestion that one must first feel “miserable” prior to feeling uplifted by something humorous: This is an erroneous view.

      By the way, why do you call yourself M36 instead of using your true identity?

  2. Scott Shuster says:

    Seeing this on the street or sidewalk would make me and many others laugh out loud and brighten our day. That’s a good thing. And yes it IS art. Avast ye depressed and hating types! Yay Isaac Brune! Steady as she goes, Yeoman! Come chalk us up here at 35th and 5th! The tourists will love it.

    I guess back in 1947 when I drew with chalk on the
    sidewalks of Madison Avenue as a kid ,I did not know it
    was art , Gee if only I knew then what I read now I could have been
    famous for 15 minutes.

  4. MM says:
