Dead Squirrel Girl video inspires art

Well, it’s chalk art, but still art nonetheless.

But not everyone drew flowers, butterflies and rainbows.

Artist Calvin Turnwall rendered a chalk drawing of a still photograph he captured online from a YouTube video of a little girl playing with a dead squirrel. Passers-by knew the one he was depicting. His prior works for the event included mummified cats, he said.

“I’m an artist; I like to shock people a little bit,” Turnwall said.
