Like! I've had a lot of auspicious coincidence the last few days so this theme resonates with me.

Teaching a class today, so I'll be missing this week's Chalk Off. I'm still voting, though!

Wasn't able to get my act together to make it to the park today, so for such a serious prize I will have to take everything I've learned from "Thursday Lunch Art Critic" and vote astutely.

Oh, Joel... if only you had shown up your ego would have been seriously boosted.

I am saying this right now to get it out there before chalk voting begins in earnest:

If I win today I am donating the entirety of my prize to Joel Larson because today is his birthday.

Happy Birthday Joel. I hope you like your portrait. I tried to do you justice.

Thank you Stowe for the birthday wishes and the giving up a GC to the red hot should you win. This year is all kinds of #winning!

And my VOTE for stowe isn't in self interest at all, nope!

But definite kudos to Monlux, dawn and Hank, I love those pieces too. and a shoutout to my birthday buddy Jewel.

T-shirts are in process. I'm waiting for a design proof from the printer (American Apparel tri-blend) I should have more info next week.

I vote for Georgia (kids) and Dawn (grown ups).

I think Monlux should print that Red Hot Tiki on a t-shirt and sell it at TRH.

by CaptainBritton
on 4/13/2012 @ 2:18pm
I vote for Matt. I like the Interactive quality of his Lucky Pennies...And I think we missed a few kids' work, but Georgia, two-weeks in a row with great chalking. I vote Georgia for the kids.

I love the kid category! Tell your friends and bring your kids!

You can't see it now, but Brian broke new ground by incorporating glow-in-the-dark sand in his piece. I'm hoping for a late night photo.

You can see more photos of art and the crowd at

Chalk up my vote for Georgia and Matt. I love the interactive aspect.

by troysworktable
on 4/13/2012 @ 7:34pm
I vote for Thorax, due to his unconventional (although accurate) portrayal of bad luck. I like how it played with the theme outside of the cliches and idiom we usually associate with luck (good or bad).

by KittyTristy
on 4/13/2012 @ 8:21pm

by AmericanWoman

by KevinFreitas
on 4/13/2012 @ 9:26pm
Amazing work everyone! I loved everyone's work especially Britton's and the pennies but everything is just great but my vote goes to Dawn for her amazing dog. :)

by Joel 413
on 4/13/2012 @ 9:39pm
Just took a special trip downtown to see if the glow-in-the-dark effect was working, but there's too much ambient light for any glow to be noticeable.

@InvaderPet - To insert an image you use an html tag in the comment box is <img src="">

by TacomaJ

Kids vote-Georgia for the pot o gold with guarian black cat and for being a good sport when her friend chalked all over her square and everything else around ;)
Adults- Monlux for the sheer size of that hot dog eating tiki.
Great day to be at the park today...

by Dianne
on 4/13/2012 @ 10:09pm

by KevinFreitas
on 4/14/2012 @ 9:31am
Ladies and gentlemen, I believe Georgia handily mopped up in the kids category (congrats!) but the spread among the grown ups was impressive. And the tie for first place goes to...

Dawn 6
Stowe 6

Britton 5
Ariel 5
Adam 4
Thorax 3
Matt 3
Monlux 2
Brian 2
Troy 1

I'll let y'all duke out how the prize gets divided up. As always, great art everyone and see ya next week!

by jamesstoweart
on 4/14/2012 @ 9:56am
If it is alright with Joel I'd like to give the win to Dawn... however since I've offered to give up my prize to him it isn't completely my call. I will defer to Joel. I'm happy to let Dawn have it though.

by dawntown2
on 4/14/2012 @ 11:26am
I agree with stowe and will give prize to fellow artist joel! I had a fantastic time. So when do you guys think we can have some live music to accompany the festivities?

by jamesstoweart
on 4/14/2012 @ 11:46am

Would you like the $25 gift certificate to Amocat that I won last week instead? You would be more likely to get down there than I would.

That way we can give Joel the Red Hot money. let me know if that works for you.
