"You cannot possibly beat me, I'm just to good at art" - RR Anderson 2008

Sadly, I cannot attend due to my New Tacoma Award nomination stealing me away over the noon hour. Enjoy and I'm sure some fellow SiteCraftingers will be on-hand for the challenge. Enjoy all!

That SHIRT is priceless.

Blue sky and sunny at Frost Park!

I needs a "ringer" to win this thing but don't have enough time to round one up.

Wow. What a nice sunny event in Frost Park.

RR Anderson's chalk art challenge worked out pretty well.

So the winner has yet to be determined in the sidewalk chalk contest? Good talks to be had all over Frost Park today - nice meeting those of you I hadn't met prior. Patricia, thanks again for the great chat.

Here, RR Anderson struggles for his life against an unknown late arriving artist. After RR leaves, she brings out colored chalk.

seriously though thanks to everyone who came down to the BETA version of the Friday Lunchhour Chalk Competition.. I will concede this: Mistakes were Made. Unfortunately you enter into a spontaneous sidewalk chalk art competition with the supplies/spelling on hand and not the supplies/spelling YOU WISH you had.

we’re conducting a survey and hiring an out of town consulting firm so Next week we’ll be back with..
1. assigned/numbered sidewalk sections for competitors 2. a greater supply of sidewalk chalk (bring your own if you’re worried about it even) 3. rigid adherence to the abstract concept of time.

see you next week

Good seeing you all,

Adam if your reading this the url for that video service is called vimeo, here are a few videos I've put up there

Hah. I am, in fact, reading this (for once - I've been avoiding this "reading" thing, it seems). I'm having some technical frustrations at the moment, but should have both today's video and the one from the snow a few weeks ago up soonish (if not before I go to sleep, then within 24 hours). I'll give vimeo a try sometime in the next few days, when I have more time - in the meantime, I'm working at growing a larger subscriber base on YouTube, so making sure I get uploaded there takes priority.
