Hopefully, Frost Park events are popular enough that people will want to post them voluntarily.

Apparently... I can't spell.


no... Notoriety.

Knowing is half the battle.

Finally, Frost Park Chalk Off events have a full blown poster advertisement. There was the earlier X men one. But this one is better for announcement of the event.

Knowing is half the battle.

The mis spelled posters with be worth twice as much.

Now Stowe just needs to employ the ingenious scarcity driven Beautiful Angle pricing scheme:

Mr. Stowe is a real American hero.

Updated the poster now with the correct spelling.

How does one go about downloading a 25 meg version of the poster for printing?

The full size version is only 286k.

So, Mr Butts is made of chalk now and plays pinball in Tacoma? I'm confused.

You're not confused... that's it exactly.

Also... the 286k version is a compressed 72 dpi jpg and not suitable for printing. We are looking into the best deal for printers for it now and when we decide on one I'll be trolling for financial supporters. Anyone that contributes to spreading Frost park promotional message will get a free hand drawn thank you from me. It isn't much, but I can't afford the $150-200 dollars alone that this is going to need. Let me know if you be interested in contributing or you know a really good printer.

I'm very willing to chip in for poster production. As I recall we got a sweet deal on our Urban Art Festival posters. Lemme make some calls.

I'll definitely pitch in for printing. w00t and cheers to Stowe!

I'll throw down on that.

mee too

@Mandiferous & Others ... I'm rounding up printer quotes .... so if anyone has a contact send me a name/number so we don't overwhelm the same people with the same project from many angles ... also then I can send the same request for proper comparison. I'm such a quote geek. ;)

Count me in for a pro-rata piece.

Re: printing -
Graphic Services does a nice job (not cheap though).

Don't laugh- I also heard Costco does some good printing. And at $10 for a poster size print (up to 20x30) - that's hard to beat.

Nice. When we were cleaning last week's chalk last night, I didn't really want to wash off your art, James. But the rain had gotten to it pretty badly. I just heard from Teddy's crew that the filming is still on for tomorrow.

by Rue on 7/31/2008 @ 8:07pm
Seriously Stowe. Have you talked with Lance about partnering up on a Beautiful Angle poster yet?

by jenyum on 8/1/2008 @ 7:59am
Sorry to hear you will not be there, RR. Next week is World Breastfeeding Week and I have reason to believe you would not be afraid of that material :) Just something to think about for next Friday.

by Lance Kagey on 8/1/2008 @ 9:03am
Tadd Bentson at Bentson Printing in stadium district is about the cheapest option out there. And he's a nice guy too. That counts for something.

Yes, we are going to have Stowe be a guest artist with Beautiful Angle we just have to figure out the timing. I can't wait. I'm sure it will be one of our best ever.

And James you can count on my contribution to help with print costs.

See ya all at noon. I gotta figure out a way to get one of those super cool green roofs with a pigmy goat. Uber Hip!
