|Frost almost has 60 chalk offs under its belt!|

|Did anyone pick up a black and white, square shaped, golf umbrella at the park last week? I loaned it to someone heading to the chalk off and it was... misplaced. I'm just hoping someone snagged it for safe keeping!|

|I fell asleep in front of the tee vee last night watching a major network. I then woke up to a morning news program and a news ticker at the bottom that read:|
Obama awarded the Nobel Peace Prize - American Scientists bomb the moon. . .
It was awesome.

|today is AWESOME DAY. everything instead of being normal is now AWESOME! |
“Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future,” the committee said in its citation. “His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population.”

|my conservative family members are already BABBLING INSANELY! it is glorious.|

|Well, it will be fun to listen to the pundits purge their indignation on national radio and television, but despite the theatrical value it's more the absurdity keeping me entertained.
The last news program I watched today featured Obama's Nobel Peace Prize award and followed that story up with a photo taken of the President and his advisors deliberating on how to proceed with the war in Afghanistan.

|What ever the hell you draw today, with all of this creative fodder it oughta be a doozy.|

Great work on a beautiful day everyone. Let the voting begin!
by Heatherrebel on 10/9/2009 @ 1:51pm
|While I think Addison's and Doug's reflect the spirit of our time (not to mention herald the Holy of Holies, Halloween), my spirit moves me to vote for Kenji's beautiful piece. Nice work all.|
by marumaruyopparai on 10/9/2009 @ 2:08pm
|RR's beautiful portrait of our own Nobel Laureate and President of the United States, Barack Obama, poised next to a U.S. sanctioned and initiated bombing of the Earth's moon speaks to me on a deeply personal and emotional level. I am compelled to cast a vote this week, and cast that vote for Mr. RR Anderson's piece.|
Awesome day indeed.
by NineInchNachos on 10/9/2009 @ 2:28pm
|for the record Dave Boe though it was a portrait of Timothy M. Farrell|
by Mark Monlux on 10/9/2009 @ 2:28pm
|A agree that today is an awesome day for President Obama. And, it almost caught me by the heartstrings. Then I saw the skull with wings that Doug drew and I loved the simplicity of the design and bright colors. And then I saw Kenji's work - note the complete lack of black in his design - something I'm very fond of doing myself. Tough call all the way around.|
I vote for Doug.
FYI: If you want to see photos of The CLAW at 24 hour comic you can do so at The CLAW Flickr group page, or at Comic Book Ink's recently created Flickr group page.
And for links to the art done during the 24 hours, go to www.cartoonistsleague.org
I will remember how to make these links work one of these days. Meanwhile, cut and paste.

|In my defense, the image was still being created when I made the Farrell comment - although by the time I left the Chalk Scene, a gaggle of us thought the RR creation looked more Fred Armisen from SNL. Boe votes for RR (although kudos to all).|
by Crenshaw Sepulveda on 10/9/2009 @ 3:39pm
|I vote for RR's Obooma.|
by Earthdaughter on 10/9/2009 @ 5:01pm
|I love Kenji's work. I think he's a great addition to our chalking family. He will always be a tough competitor because of the skill and beauty of his creations.
All that being said, however, this week I have to vote for RR because of the thought-provoking theme of his drawing. Also it's a great Obama charicature and moonscape, too.
by Earthdaughter on 10/9/2009 @ 5:03pm
|P.S. Thanks for everyone who contributed "footprints" for Jim and my drawing. It was a fun piece to do.|
by Libby on 10/9/2009 @ 5:57pm
|I am voting for RR --- what a day!|
by Erik on 10/9/2009 @ 6:13pm
|I vote for Kenji!|
by Gini Ruth on 10/9/2009 @ 6:20pm
|I vote for Kenji. But I give props to RR for a most interesting drawing.|
by NineInchNachos on 10/9/2009 @ 8:43pm
|here are my best photos of the day:
Obama's wrath tastes of Moon
Kenji is a seriously cool dude.
The man (and son) who Stowe drew into his 24 hour comic after bringing OREOs and PEPSI; in turn, drew a fan tribute to STOWE.
Doug is really getting the hang of chalk. A new star emerges. Welcome Doug! Awesome!!
photo didn't really turn out well, but Patricia does some nice footprints.
I vote for Doug. I love wings!
by KevinFreitas on 10/9/2009 @ 9:29pm
|Great topical work RR! Totally digging on Kenji's groove and enjoyed the audience participation of the footsteps piece. But I gotta vote Doug this week for his impressive and colorful work. Great to see so many new faces!|
by L.S.Erhardt on 10/9/2009 @ 9:44pm
|Sorry I was unable to attend... all that asphalt needs making!|
So, while I sincerely appreciate RR's Obama bombing the terri'sts on the moon instead of those in Afghanistan (and we thought blunders like that were so 2007!) I have to vote for Kenji. Sorry Doug, but skulls leave me c-c-c-cold.
by jamesstoweart on 10/9/2009 @ 10:25pm
|Okay... there is 24 hour comic book day Stowe fan art.
I have never ever been fanarted.
I vote for KAE... cause that is the most awesome thing ever.
As to whether I deserve a Nobel Prize...well, Obama got one...
And he didn't even compete in 24 Comic Book Day (to my knowledge).
by Mark Monlux on 10/10/2009 @ 10:32am
|It is 10:29 a.m. and I have just finished tallying the votes. I've double checked them, but feel free to question my basic mathematical skills.
Congratulations to both RR and Obooma.

Kenji had a strong showing though.
Someone needs to add up the episodes wins to see who is the Greatest Illustrator in the Universe of Tacoma this year.
