Looks like its shaping up to be a nice day. Not sure if I will be able to make it out today or not. The to-do list is rather long.

Great work on the hand RR and the Amocat piece is nice.

However, Brian created a masterpiece so I vote for it.

Hmmm... Best in Theme? I vote for Brian.

Best Heart? That's a little more difficult. I vote for Tram's flag-topper as best heart.

Brian's eagle is awesome. I'm loving RR's instructional cartoon. But I'm going to vote for myself because then I might get second place. Help me lock that second place win.

I vote for Bumbershoot Tiki.

Winston Churchill would approve.

The editor of Tacoma's most influential newspaper The Tacoma Daily Index stops in to support local Ice-cream Men.

Brian goes ALL AMERICAN with Operation DESERT EAGLE.

I change my vote to RR! V for Victory in Iraq! Bring em home!

Brian's piece is fantastic and I love the dimension (visual and otherwise) or RR's "V" instructions. Great work everyone but my vote goes to Matt & Kyler 'cause I'm a total sucker for the father/son collaboration. As for my heart vote that goes to Poppy.

Well done everyone and thanks for sponsoring Bonnie!

I vote for RR's instruction manual. V signs are handy with all sorts of audiences.

Yes, that's my germ piece. I did it Thurs night by passing headlights after renewing my food worker card hence the germ theme which I turned into a PSA mash-up. Had to get my chalk on even if I wasn't in the chalk off!

Brian's eagle is freakin' fowl-tastic! I would vote for him but since I believe he is a lock for first place I will spend my VOTE on Monlux's tiki troubatour.

by debivans
on 9/3/2010 @ 10:58pm
I mean troubadour.

In perhaps the biggest landslide Frost Park has ever seen, the voting results are:

Brian: 18
RR: 3
Monlux: 2
Matt & Kyler: 1

Best Heart is a tie between Tram and Poppy, each receiving 1 vote.
