Frost Park: Elle Defends Against Kagey Lupin RR Stowe

Tomorrow (5/2) is Friday's

Frost Park "Chalk Off"


Episode IV: Week 4



Elle Defends Against All Challengers






Elle

Current Frost Park "Chalk Off" Champion



V.

The Challengers:




      Kagey                    RR                    Stowe                Lupin


Elle will also have to defend her title of "Best Illustrator in the Universe of Tacoma" against the new Unknown Artist, who like many of the contestants, has her own following and extensive portfolio of art work.

However, her art is radically different from anything attempted to date in Frost Park.   (Please don't expect her to draw a variant of "Tagro")




Coming this Friday to Frost Park Chalk Off

The (newest) Unknown Artist


(Please note: the Unknown Artist creates art through what appears to be a fury of "Automatic Writings" which is a very physical and "free form" creative process. Hence, please keep pets and small children at a distance during the competition for their own safety)


Episode IV Sponsor:

 

Patricia Lacey-Davis From Embellish Salon

Not only is Patricia a sponsor of the next chalk off, she is also one of the founders of "Take Back Frost Park" a precursor to the Frost Park "Chalk Off."

The Prize For This Week's Chalk Off




The victor of this week's chalk off will receive a gift bag with an assortment of prizes from Embellish Salon including a $40 gift certificate for a hair cut, the most lucrative prize at Frost Park to date.

Embellish Salon
1121 Court D #A
Tacoma, WA 98402

253.752.8144

Commentary:  With the sponsor stakes raised and the number of artists piling on, trying to predict the winner or even who will be in the top three is getting exceedingly difficult.  It should be fun.

See everyone on Friday.


(The Frost Park Chalk Off Challenge is held in downtown Tacoma at the corner of 9th and Pacific Avenue on Fridays from noon to 1:00 p.m.)

We need superhero-esque pictures of Elle and Lance, post haste.

Not to get all technical, but wasn't the first chalk-off winner to be dubbed "Best Illustrator in the UNIVERSE of Tacoma"? Was it decided that a universal title would simply inflate the winner's ego TOO much, and a worldly title was much more appropriate and humble?

Just askin'.

by Adam the Alien on 5/1/2008 @ 8:19am
Mandiferous is correct, it was indeed "universe" and not "world" - there's video evidence to prove it! :-D

I'm beginning to get frightened. And as far as a superhero-esque photo of me... I'll see what my artistic child can come up with.

technically it was "universe" but we encourage viral brand mutation (just another testament to the wild life infused into this movement).

I'm coming...

And I'm bringing my giant headless cyborg monkey with me.

I'd post a quake inducing example... but for whatever reason my image won't post properly. Comments fear my illustrative power...

It's there on my blog though...

CLICK if you dare.

also.. The People's Republic of Frost Park Chalk Stockpile is looking a little shabby these days, so if you don't want to risk a Chalk Shortage you may want to smuggle in a Private Chalk Horde which you could then sell on the Chalk BlackMarket.

- a tiny sprinkling of glitter as a finishing touch can add a dazzling effect to your chalk piece.

- a plain charcoal brickette (not impregnated with flame accelerants) can be rubbed on to create a low cost COLOUR BLACK great for shadows/contrast and 3d effects.

I looked back in the Feed Tacoma archives. You are right and I fixed it. However, I have taken the liberty to drop the ALL CAPS pronouncement of the title.

I'm beginning to get frightened. And as far as a superhero-esque photo of me... I'll see what my artistic child can come up with.

I am sure a good one will come up from different photo series shot this Friday. Although the one above of you looks pretty cool.

We need superhero-esque pictures of Elle and Lance, post haste.

I had a difficult time finding any images of Lance on the internets. He hunkers down on his work and then leaves early.

Nice.

OMG. Watch out folks. Stowe look serious:

That's the second art piece made on Frost Park.

Lupin made the first:

Should be a great clash of the Titans (Titanes AND Titanides). But just confirming (for myself and anyone else becoming increasingly frightened by the same thing) that it’s O.K. to participate even if one has no chance of conquering any of the universes. I’m the best drawer in my cubicle, that’s about it. (And too many years of AutoCAD has made it irreversible.)

by NineInchNachos on 5/1/2008 @ 12:17pm
yeah all people are welcome to participate. you can even team up, but the responsibility of prize distribution for a winning team is up to the team members.

by Erik on 5/1/2008 @ 1:36pm

Yes. Chalk one, chalk all. Plus, alot of people are going to show up just for lunch, conversation and watch the community chalking event.

Tacomamamma was putting together a good kids station for bubbles.

I thought the "official" rule book states the use of glitter is illegal. If I can use glitter then... well, it's just pretty.

Erik, does your mystery artist have a cult following, red hair and sculpt concrete? perchance?

Yes, she has a cult following and is well known. But that's pretty much a given for many Tacoma artists.

For the rest of the answers, you have but a mere 22 hours to wait to find out.

I tried to get talk a local artist to participating, but she's in the studio with too many deadlines approaching. No comment on friend Teddy’s haircut (or his karaoke), but he was saying how he was going to be in CA doing his stand-in work for a month – maybe he’s not back yet. I can’t imagine him not wanting to show up if he could. This is kind of along the lines of his monthly public participation art-slam at Jazzbones.

I walked into Corina Bakery today. They are trying to bring up their coffee now that they have new owners and are already coming up the coffee curve.

Other remodeling and changes expected.


Check this out:



After coffee, I took a stroll around the corner to Two Vaults Gallery. There was a slew of horse art pieces on display. At first, I thought it was a western show or something.

Then, near the front, I spotted Frost Park's very own Andrea Trenbeath piece, the only one of its genre in the gallery.

I looked for other horse submissions to the gallery by other Frost Park challengers such as RR and the rest but did not see any.
