There’s only so much most of us can see when looking at basic pavement. Not David Zinn, though. This talented artist is from Ann Arbor, Michigan, and is well-known for his chalk-drawn pieces on the streets. His drawings follow the adventures of random adorable characters and are very popular among David’s more than 600K followers on Instagram.

In a previous Bored Panda post, the artist told us: "The honest truth about my art is that I am inspired by the absence of perfection as a possibility: between the irregularities of the stained concrete and the limited hours of available daylight outdoors, perfection is blessedly not an option. Instead, there is just the lunatic joy of finding the most satisfying option that exists within those limitations." Scroll down to see the newest work by David.

Imagine someone is walking with cup of coffee in their had. They fail to notice the little creature and get startled by it and spill coffee on it. It will erupt wings.

The thimble flowerpot does it for me. I LOVED the Borrower books when I was a kid, and how they 'borrowed" thimbles and buttons and other tiny stuff to use.
