The Powerpuff Girls Soar Over Dubai to Celebrate On-air Return

Who remembers The Powerpuff Girls? If even the mention of the words ‘I, Moooojo JoJo’ make you smile, you’re probably in the right demographic to appreciate this (though you’re possibly not the target audience this time around…).
To celebrate the show’s on-air return to Cartoon Network after more than a decade, Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup drones flew through the air, against the impressive backdrop of the cityscape, including the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.

Chalk Street Art Character Interacts with Surrounding Landscapes

Little green Alien brings a smile to peoples’ faces all over Ann Arbor
Some people might still have their doubts about street art, but the city of Ann Arbor has accepted the idea whole-heartedly thanks to the adorable chalk illustrations of David Zinn. His work features a little green alien called Sluggo, who can be found interacting with other imaginary characters all over the city. Created with chalk, charcoal and found objects, each piece is completely improvised, and has proven to be a huge hit with the local children.
Part of what makes Zinn’s illustrations so special is that they aren’t meant to last forever – rain, snow and street cleaners all pose a threat. In an interview with the Ann Arbor news, he said, “Really it’s pointless, other than hopefully it cheers someone up.” More than that, the art aims to mystify people and shake them out of their usual reality in order to appreciate the moment.
Sluggo can be found marching through double yellow painted lines, tracking yellow foot prints along his way, sitting on tropical islands, fishing in the sidewalk, and attacking leaves with a rake – to name just a few.
His art isn’t just for show either, as there have been times when people decide to make their own changes to the art. On one such occasion, Zinn returned to check on a cute little rainbow-colored alien with a hole in its stomach, and was happy to discover that someone had left a pile of Skittles in the middle of the alien’s belly.
