for those cold fall days... a little warmth in your heart
In the world of competitive sidewalk chalk illustration there are winners and there are losers. Many many losers. Yet the greatest number ever are counted in winners. What I mean is, any civilian who encounters one of our artists' works in the wild is instantly transformed into a winner.
Below is a retrospective of some of my favorite mind blowing experiences.

|that's my buttttt.... with dawn's butttttt... damn, they're cute butttttts, (can I say that? even when mine's on the large-ish side, comparitively??) --
awwwwwwwwww, RR, and Eric, and et-cetera (hi, Kevin!) what a faboooo look back in time. Such a good year, good event, good energy. It must be bottled and either sold as perfume to rival Britt-Knee, or preserved for next spring. I vote the latter.
again, all I can say is, what a fabulous, fabulous thing this was... (and will be!!)

Excited to see Andrea's contribution.

|Talked with Debivans at CLAW white elephant gift exchange... anyone wanna do a Christmas Frost Park chalking?|
by Dave_L on 12/10/2011 @ 8:35pm
|Thank you, R.R.|
Man, I have a lot of great lunch-hour memories from when I was able to attend these. Especially the time some of you pushed me into chalking for the first time.
A Christmas Frost Park chalking is a great idea!

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
