This week's sponsor is FeedTacoma friend Mandi with a very genARRRous prize of two pirate books and a treasure map. I think you know the theme this week. FeedTacoma is also throwing in a $25 gift certificate to the Poison Apple -- right across the street from Frost Park. Happy chalking!

I would love to see someone turn the corner at the edge of the wall into a ships prow with a Firgurine on it. I couldn't do it justice.

I'd be down for that. Lets join forces and turn the corner planter into a giant pirate ship! (this is Stowe on his son's account)

Impressive crowd-sourced ship. But I gotta vote for Debivans 'cause I don't want to prompt a fight over who in the group gets the goodies from Mandi...

I vote for the team what done that Fair vessel. I don't care how ye split th' booty, but him that dies last should get the treasure! Beware the Black Spot ye dogs!

Point of clarification: The last piece is by Shana, not Aza. What was misread as "aza" is the last part of the title, 'The Singing Sea."

Chalk up my Vote for Debivans. Am much amused by them all but that one most of all.

@Adam: Fixed!

I love Shana's and Debivan's piece but have to vote team pirate ship! It felt good to chalk a bit and enjoy the day out there with everyone.

While you all were having fun chalking, I was watching a 300-ft derrick pull out old pilings at my work. Quite interesting but not as fun.

Anyway, I'ma vote for Debivans. I like the peg-head. It reminds me of an old far side strip.

I vote for Joel, Stowe, Adam the Alien, Kevin, & Debivans. And I found a few more pirate-y things to add to this week's prize! Prizes for everyone!

I'm tempted to vote for the awesome collaborative effort on a pure, "that is awesome" level, but I feel like I vote for myself too much as it is. So even though this is a collaboration, I'm going to avoid voting for it.

Instead, I vote for Shana, who came out on only 20 minutes of sleep, having only chalked once before and already showing strong improvement.

Looks like the results are...
Debivans: 4
Team Pirate Ship: 6
Shana: 1

I'd like to point out that due to his participation in the team effort, this technically means Debivans comes in at both first and second place. Is that a first? I'm not sure. But the group effort is the winner!

Debivans is just too powerful. He needs to be restrained...Debivans, draw an ongoing comic strip or two and let somebody else win the chalk-offs...You beautifully talented monster! :)
