I have fresh duck and goose eggs galore. There are way more than we can eat. They are top notch for baking and make the richest gourmet quality omelets. I'll bring a few dozen to Chalk Off, no set price but donations or barter much appreciated.

Is there a plan B for rain, which is highly probable—like Sketch Off at Dorky's?

It's going to be so sunny

"Overcast with rain. High of 57F. Winds from the SSW at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 90%."

I guess I'll bring the umbrella. And a towel to partially dry off the concrete.

Rain at Chalk Off? unheard of! we'll just have to cancel. I don't mean that. I'm all ready for chalking and am NOT waiting another week.

You guys need something like this for those inclement weather days.

Sadly, I can't make it, but I can't wait to see what you guys draw! Gimme lots o' pictures! And video! And chaos!

Well, the chaos is a given, I suppose.

Come on, Troy, you know we're out there no matter the weather. If I didn't have things to do down in Oregon today, I'd be up there chalking even if there was a foot of snow!

I'll be there. But I want to see a lot of others there, downpour or not.

If anyone wants to sneak the Alien into a drawing, so I can sort of be there, you will win a hug. Or if you don't like hugs, you will win a not-hug.

Sorry for the delay in labelled pictures. Spend the day playing in the rain at the park with the kids.










Stowe - Final Bridge

Mark Monlux




I count 14 artists for episode 1, that's a fantastic start to the season. While there's no prize on the line (this week, we've got prizes lined up through the end of June though!!) there was some fantastic chalk art out there.

Now remember, you have until midnight tonight to vote, and you must use the word "VOTE" in your comment or it doesn't count!

I miss Ariel!

I vote Stowe.

by KevinFreitas

Wow! Great work everyone! I love Stuart's and Monlux's and all the kids were fantastic but I vote Stowe since I'm on the board of the group who tried and still wants to tastefully light those beautiful bridges. Cheers everyone!

I vote for Monlux's bunnies.

So many great chalkings today! I adore Micah's blue cheeked bunny, it looks so playful; but I VOTE for Lyn because the drawing style reminds me of the transience of both cherry blossoms and chalk art...

Ah, fuck. I was trying to decide who to vote for, and I lost track of time. Bleh.

I vote for RIP Ebert.

Wow, okay, so not only did I forget to vote, but voting itself was a mess this week (well, we've had messier, but still)! Thankfully, Stowe is the undisputed winner, or we'd have some trouble calculating things.

Stowe: 4
Ben: 1
Mark: 1
Lyn: 1
Poppy: 1?

RR voted twice this week, once for "tadpole" (I'm assuming that meant Poppy and applying that first vote to Poppy with a question mark) and one (I'm assuming) facetious late vote for "flowers" from the living embodiment of chaos and ridiculousness himself.

InvaderPet voted for RIP Ebert this morning, but the voting cutoff was midnight last night.
