Britton is our sponsor offering up this original painting:

Fantastic prize and an easy billboard theme to go with it. See everyone at noon!

Sorry I couldn't be there today, work necessitated my presence.

@K^F - did a double exchange happen today?

My vote goes to Troy for his crazed lolli guy. But I do love the drawing by Jared. Nice work everyone.

I vote for Gerogia because I think last night I dreamed what she chalked, I'm pretty sure.

I had such a great time...Troy's Captain Knuckles is great, I think my son fell in love with Georgia (i mean in a six-year-old way), I really dig the Ooo-Laa-Laa shape of Meli's Mergal, And Brian, Adam, Jared and Kyra's were all super-great...Billboard Tiki should be on the sixth and Division billboard instead of freakin' Key Bank, or whatever, so I enthusiastically vote for Monolux.

Thanks for coming everybody and don't forget the Rally/Protest before the city council meeting next Tuesday at around 4-4:30! Be there to show our Solidarity against Digital and Non-conforming Billboards in Tacoma!!! Turn Out That Light, Tacoma!

Today's Tiki had a double inspiration...

1. The Electronic Billboard Issue in Tacoma. I could rant about how it would be nice if the city would just follow it's own laws and I don't know, stick up for the people of Tacoma rather than a conglomo. Oh, I could just rant on this issue for hours.

2. The wonderful art provided by the sponsor has a billboard in it. So I'm doing a tribute to the artwork - which I would love - LOVE - to have on my wall.

You can see the photos I took of the various chalk pieces and the folks who attended on my flicker site here



I'm so happy I could get the corner spot. You can clearly see the Tiki from a block away. Aw! I should have taken a far shot.

I Vote for Billboard Tiki - which is going to be my only vote for a billboard in this town.

I love Troy's, Adam's, Brian's and Britton's work this week but my vote goes to Mark Monlux this week. Had britton not offered up the prize I likely would've gone for his great billboard comic.

My vote goes to Monlux.

I would vote for Britton, but that whole "offered the prize thing" sounds like a conflict of interest.

Therefore, my vote goes to Monlux

My piece today is for a close Marine friend going over seas and brother of the portrait piece a couple weeks . Both these Marine guys mean a lot to our family .

Wow looks like tiki is winning hands down..... a lot of great work done today though. I'm going to have to vote for monlux too, but Brian is a close second in my book :)

Crap, I couldn't decide, then I got distracted, then I didn't get to vote for anybody.

Is it too late to vote? Not that my vote means anything cause' it looks like Monlux is running away with it but...

I vote for Troy.

by Mark Monlux
on 7/16/2011 @ 9:45am
I'd count the votes and post them, but I think I won. Would that would be a conflict of interests? Can we get some UN counters in here or something?

The vote is:





I would say that you won, Mark.

by CaptainBritton
