with no drawing skills and all the topics on chalking on feedtacoma i got inspired to see how well it would translate into pixels.

end result is comical and disappointing :( maybe if i had a better surface and chalk?

my friend. you're on the path to greatness.

You have a good idea there.

chalk is not 8bit

With more contrast between chalk colors and a greater volume of chalk put down, I think your idea would work quite well.

is there a source of non-pastel colored chalk in tacoma?

Hey d0ug -- that's a pretty sweet Link, if you ask me. I say stop by Frost Park tomorrow at noon and pick some of the artists' brains. They always seem to have some seriously vibrant stuff.

Where'd you lay this one down?

work prevents me from making it to any of the frost park events :(

link is out in my back yard.

i located some better brighter chalk at uw bookstore.

i had idea to lace a wooden frame with string into a pixely grid dust it with powdered construction snap line chalk and drop the frame leaving an imprint of the grid onto the concrete. i cant source string that will embrace the chalk for the purpose :(

manually making the grids is boring.
