The B.S. you get away with in Tacoma might be okay with the Tacoma Art Museum but just remember, you're under supervision of the Community Programs Coordinator.

Watch out for black helicopters!

Special Request: Draw a Community Programs Coordinator with SUPERVISION.

you getting paid?

Yeah that supervised line is duuuuumbbbbb, sounds like you should bust out the giant chalk penis

Knowing that I will be out there drawing on the Tacoma Art Museum is payment enough. Hopefully we'll negotiate a worthy prize for the chalk winner. Usually our favorite divorce lawyer does this... yet I still need to bring all this up at the next secret CLAW meeting and hopefully get a quorum of interested members.

You should come down and do the wikichalk thing in Tollefson intacoma!

RR: Is TAM aware of your "history?" I see that they reserve the "right" to "terminate" your contract at any time. I hope you can chalk fast!

by NineInchNachos on 3/9/2009 @ 8:59pm
"history" is hot right now. The people are angst ridden and desire champions to articulate their rage. Never underestimate hardship as a unifying force.

Nice work RR and CLAW!

Sounds like the chalk challenge found a new venue to perform in, at least for this event.

The plaza could work well for chalking with all of the people coming in and out of the Tacoma Art Museum and the superior concrete.

Maybe it can be the impetus to pay to get Julian Beever to come over the pond and learn how you guys do it Tacoma-style.

by NineInchNachos on 3/10/2009 @ 10:25pm
just got back from the secret CLAW meeting.

CLAW has agreed to launch the Frost Park Chalk Challenge at the Tacoma Art Museum event. CLAW will be a chalking force to be reckoned with.

Maybe it can be the impetus to pay to get Julian Beever to come over the pond and learn how you guys do it Tacoma-style.

One can hope. However, I think Julian charges over 5 figures a chalking.

Dang. The Tacoma Art Museum Draw Event is today at noon to 5. I wonder what the prize will be?

by NineInchNachos on 4/19/2009 @ 11:12am

Andrea and I got there apparently just after R.R. left. But we were there, and we chalked. Video forthcoming.

by ALT on 4/19/2009 @ 7:27pm
Yeah, I brilliantly forgot my camera this morning. That sucked not only because I was incapable of snapping some chalky memorabilia, but I didn't get a picture taken of me in a snazzy stormtrooper outfit.

Adam graced the Art Museum plaza with his wily, trademark alien heralded by an army of chalk soldiers, and I drew a baby blue she-rex with the wings of Hermes upon her clawed feet.

Sorry we missed you, RxR and Erik, but happily Stowe, Dawn, and Mark were still sticking around when we got there.

by NineInchNachos on 4/19/2009 @ 8:24pm
baby max got hot and we had to jet. also no decent black charcoal. Hopefully mark got some good pics!

by Erik on 4/19/2009 @ 9:16pm
Very cool. Did anyone win the prize?

I look forward to seeing the video.

by L.S.Erhardt on 4/19/2009 @ 10:47pm
RR, you got permission?

Not a bad way at all to gain their trust. I await Phase 3, when the real fun begins!

Seems that Banksy beat you to Phase 3, so it should be interesting to see what CLAW can cook up.


by Dave_L on 4/20/2009 @ 1:23am
Spent the afternoon at the Spring Fair, but we stopped by TAM n the evening to see all the nice work.

by NineInchNachos on 4/20/2009 @ 1:01pm
The stadium drum line, DJ and Fab Five breakers added an exciting element to the chalking. The TAM solar oven plaza has primo smooth concrete... a pleasure to defile with colorful urban folk art.

a bit of wisdom for Thorax I read recently...

Q: what is the fastest way to eliminate an enemy?
A: make them a friend.

by L.S.Erhardt on 4/20/2009 @ 4:57pm
The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
And the friend of my enemy is Peter Cetera.

I've finally got my video of the whole shindig up:

Sorry for the delay, but there were problems related to the fact that YouTube royally screwed the pooch and deleted my account without cause. Apparently some asshats were running around mass-flagging YouTube videos on various channels to get the accounts of the video owners automatically banned.

All is well, now, however - my account is back and the video -though delayed is up.

by NineInchNachos on 4/21/2009 @ 9:53pm
adam the alien hits another home run. nice work buddy

by Dave_L on 4/22/2009 @ 12:11am
Thanks, Adam, the evening is now complete. Nice vid and nice coordination of the wonderful soundtrack, and good sturmtruper content. Plus, Macaulay's a hero.
