Artwork and story by Trevor Robbins. Photography by Tori Robbins

Ever since I was able to hold a pencil, I have been sketching. When not working or completing college assignments, I am usually busy with a drawing. I have always loved sharks and I am a huge fan of the 1975 summer blockbuster Jaws. Therefore, I decided to celebrate the beginning of Shark Week 2019 by creating a sidewalk chalk version of the Jaws film poster on my driveway.

In my search for the right colors, I bought every sidewalk chalk I could find in the local stores of Long Beach Island, Barnegat, and Manahawkin. With the help of my sister, Tori, the finished product was 27 feet by 20 feet, and took four days to complete.

Unfortunately, after only two days of having added the final touches, the picture was washed away completely by rain. Luckily, all that hard work will live on in photographs taken by my sister before the wash out. This was my first time trying my hand at chalk drawing and it most certainly will not be my last.
