Oh, it'll hold. Should be a great day out there for chalking! Can't wait to see everyone!

And we have a sponsor! Just waiting on a little more info but it'll be well worth everyone's chalking and votes...

I vote for Andrea. I love this piece, it is both creative and thematic, complete with a twist on the old butcher charts. Great work.

I vote for Barrett, but he's probably not into cheese and wine from stink, So I'll vote for Joel to win (so he can enjoy Stink), but Barrett's for straight-up imagineering (that is a boat that was "literally" pushed up the volcano and placed there just to see what the density of the clouds were once the volcano explodes and the boat is blasted into the lower atmosphere).

80s cheese all the way.

I have to vote for Britton.

by KevinFreitas
on 7/8/2011 @ 7:07pm
Wow, young Jared rocked the front wall and I love Britton's smurfs! So many good ones this week and so many great pieces by kids. It's a toss up for me between Andrea's clever bovine and Joel's still life. Well, I gotta vote Joel mainly because I helped him figure out how best to fill in those wine glasses. Hope you get that date night amigo!

Great work everyone!

I've been practicing technique and learning from the Frost Park Chalking School of Art. I'm getting better... Now if I can learn perspective....

I also would love to spend that $50 on my wife!

I vote for still life with Stink

by wildcelticrose
on 7/8/2011 @ 7:29pm

I vote for Brian's mirrored Twin boys, very cool idea.

by jenyum
on 7/8/2011 @ 8:12pm
I vote for Britton, 80s cheese and a creative use of a small space.

by Jesse Stah
on 7/8/2011 @ 8:15pm
Joel, baby. Joel.

by NineInchNachos
on 7/8/2011 @ 8:25pm
I wholeheartedly vote for Captain Britton. Why not a whole race of lady smurfs and only one dude smurf? 80's cheese is the most stinky!

by Jesse Stah
on 7/8/2011 @ 8:30pm
I meant to say I VOTE FOR JOEL

by jamesstoweart
on 7/8/2011 @ 8:45pm
I promised my on that I would vote for him but I also know that he is lactose intolerant and would not benefit from Stink or the stink that would eventually come from Stink. Knowing this I am upholding my promise with the understanding that technically my vote is for Barrett and is super awesome volcano boat... but in reality my prize vote goes to Joel. I hope he gets to take his lady out to Stink.

I VOTE FOR JOEL. But not because Jesse Stah told me to. She's not the boss of me!

I vote for Andrea's cheese cow. I like the substitution of one food product of the cow for another, as well as the lighter colored cheeses against the cow's silhouette as though cuts of beef. Interesting and thought-provoking.

by MarkMonlux
on 7/8/2011 @ 10:11pm
I vote for Andrea's Cheese Cow, even though it's missing the all important "Head Cheese".

by ALT
on 7/8/2011 @ 10:45pm
I really like Stowe's portrait but I vote for my Dairy Cow. I like the way it turned out, Kevin took a great photo, and I'm encouraged by the votes. :)

by Joel 413
on 7/9/2011 @ 9:03am
Wow, this one was a squeaker! Here's what I came up with, would someone please confirm as I benefit from the result.

Joel 10

Stowe 1
Brian 1

So close! Glad it wasn't a tie though, they kind of complicate things. Congrats, Joel!

Like RR I didnt see the cheese at first, Andrea. If my wife wasn't so excited about the prize I totally would have voted .

Once again, great art by all, see you next week!

And thanks for all the comments and help.
