Frost Park's Greatest Hits

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.   

Dave L's technicolor Frost Park Lights Joe Izenman does Martin the Angry English Owl Made in Russia: Elle Stowe's World Record Chalk Experiment Urban Folk Art Crowd Shot Andrea + Adam the Alien Sarah Palin of Alaska in Tacoma Dawn's Underdog (awesome) Monlux Learn To Draw School RR's LeMay Americaz Auto Museum: Life's a Gas Unknown Artist + Lance Dave L's Fantastic Java Jive Lara Hanan Throws Down Electric Elliot's Technicolor Dream Future Father & Son Chalk Duo Ms. Darcy Enjoys the Melon 2 Professor Fry, Constructon Cranes
The end?

RR I can't believe the "I've got Boobs!" shot of Elle didn't make your list... not that there's anything wrong with that.

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!!)

Just plowed through 3,000 or so of my Frost Park pics and pulled 77 of my favs that I hope to show this weekend. Can't wait to share!

Nice Kevin.

I hear even Electric Elliot is going to have a piece hanging there.

Excited to see Andrea's contribution.

and thanks Joel for turning my string of warm memories into a burlesque show. You rascal!

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!
