Frost Park T-shirts will be available for $20 soon!

Shirts are a white silk screen on American Apparel tri-black. Sizes are unisex XS-2XL (women should order a size smaller than usual).

I want to make sure I order the right quantities in the various sizes, so let me know what sizes you'll want and I will make sure to have those on hand.

I'm in for at least a medium. Thanks @Joel!

Tomorrow's chalk forecast: Overcast with a chance of rain in the morning, then partly cloudy with a chance of rain.

Sounds good to me! Unlike baseball, chalkers don't have rainouts. :)

Probably not making it down today; had a late night with friends and at 12:08 I'm still wobbly. I expect to see some great art when I drop down to look at it later!

I vote for Andrea. There was a lot of great work out there, but I liked how Andrea was able to work the baseball, stadium, and pie into one image. I especially liked the crowd as the filling. The small dots of blue and white around the diamond and field, to represent the players, were an additional nice touch. A stunning piece.

Bummed to miss it today, but getting ready to move is a lot of work!

I have to VOTE for Andrea. So clever turning the slice into a baseball diamond and the crowd and the mashup of two traditions, well done!

A close second is Monlux's gluttony piece. I love the painterly rendering of his slob. Get this man some oil paints.

I had fun today. I thought my piece was going to be easy to draw. Assumed I'd be done in a half hour. But it was hard drawing a wall on a wall. Took up the whole hour!

Man, today's vote is hard. I wish I had been there. Right now I am torn between 5 different pieces.

1. I love the Ghey owl. Love it.
2. There is an audience participation catcher in the park now thanks to Hank... which is wicked cool.
3. The concept of Debivan's wall piece is suburb
4. Andrea's is probably one of the best peice she has done in a very long time... which is really saying a lot because her work is usually pretty awe inspiring...

ultimately though, I am voting for...

5. Mark Monlux's Guttony. Why? Because it is unlike anything I have ever seen Mark chalk. It is a real stylistic departure and one that has really grabbed my attention. Nice job Mark.

by KevinFreitas
on 4/27/2012 @ 9:32pm
Wow, some great work! It's between Monlux, Andrea, and Debivans. Hmm... I vote for Andrea for her amazing work but it only just beat out that cute flying brick.

Great job all!

by Adam the Alien
on 4/27/2012 @ 11:32pm
I vote Debivans. I don't know why, it just stands out for me.

by Joel 413

Fun fun fun. Don't know why I didn't give my pie more definition, but I was trying a different style.

Anyway, to make it official.
