our story

I’m Macaire and recently started 9th grade. My little brother, Camden, is in 4th grade. We live in Illinois in the USA. I started creating chalk art in March 2020 to entertain Cam while at home during COVID.

Cam is included in every picture I chalk and helps bring the art to life. We set a goal of creating chalk art for 100 days in a row and met that goal on July 4, 2020…

We’re honored how widely our chalk art is being shared.

Over 40 countries across 6 continents have written articles about our art and people from all over the world ask Cam to ‘visit’ their country through the art.

I continue creating chalk art because I’m so excited that it makes people happy and because there are many more adventures for Cam to take. Thanks to all of you who encourage us with kind words and travel ideas. We are so happy knowing our world is growing a little closer through Cam’s travels. Please join Cam as he continues to explore the world, all from our driveway.


Since March 2020, I have created over 125 chalk drawings.
Please check them out and add a comment to let me know what you think.

We’re creating a book that will include many of our chalk adventures and share our inspiration for them. Please share your email if you are interested in learning more about it.

Watch how I create the art. Each drawing is approximately 12×16 feet and I draw them free hand. I measure Cam to ensure he ‘fits’ in each space.


Cam and I are having a great time talking with others who are helping share our story. Here’s some recent examples of interviews.
