Luna Park Chalk Art Festival

Ok, so this was my first time doing chalk art on concrete.  I was a little intimidated but just decided to go for it. I didn't bring a photo or a sketch or anything to go by, like most things in my life I just winged it. Because I normally work really small, most of my pieces top out at 7 inches, doing a 10x10 foot drawing seemed impossible but 4 1/2 hours later there you have it.

This was the 4th Annual Chalk Art Festival at Backesto Park on the Northside in San Jose. Friends Lacey Bryant, Al Preciado, Paul Gonzales, and our fearless leader Katrine Loera chair and organizer of the festival, along with loads of other artists, kids and high school art students made some incredible pieces. There was also some really cool entertainment, art booths, food trucks (I had rad Korean tacos from Mogo and amazing handmade ice cream from Treatbot!) This was a fantastic event and if you weren't there, check it out next year!

 On Saturday September 24th I'll be participating in the Luna Park Chalk Art Festival. Not only will I make a big ass chalk art piece, I'll also have a booth seeling my paintings, prints and lots more. There's also going to be cool food trucks, live music and dancers and tons of other nifty artists.  I hope that you can be there! Details below...
