LANSING, Mich. —
A mother-daughter duo in Lansing spent two days creating chalk artwork in hopes of bringing joy to their neighbors.
Samantha Nesbitt and her daughter Alexis drew cartoon characters on the sidewalk outside of their Lansing home on Wednesday and Thursday.
"I don't know, we just wanted to spread some joy. We love watching people walk by and look at it" Nesbitt said. "It's been really sad around lately so, I like seeing people smile walking by."
"I mean my family's pretty artistic," Nesbitt explained. "My dad likes to draw and stuff, and I've just kind of passed it through to her, and we just wanted something to do together after school and so we just started doing it.""
Nesbitt said she got a great reaction from her neighbors.
"Oh yeah! We use the Nextdoor neighbor site, and I posted up on there letting people know to come by and check it all out and feel free to take pictures and hang out in front of the house. I just love watching little kids walk by and get all excited about each character, so I tried pick stuff that boys and girls would like, and all ages," she said.
Her son Abel said, "My favorite character is all of them, even Kirby, because I love Kirby."
Nesbitt says to stay tuned throughout the summer to see what other characters the two will come up with.
