Today my friend Ashley and I checked out the annual Pasadena Chalk Festival. I think it's always fun to see what artists will do with that medium. Even though we got there about two and a half hours after it started, there were some pretty cool looking drawings already well on their way. We saw everything from 3D dragons, to pin-up girls, to Frida Kahlo. Quite a selection. I'm almost tempted to go back tomorrow when the pieces will be complete. But, we'll see. Lots of work to do around the apartment.
Anyway, here are a few of my shots from the day!
Cupid and Psyche! I like to see people recreating some classics.
3D chalk covered dragons need dental care too.
Oh, Frida. You and your unibrow.
I thought she needed to add a bit more green.
I think this kaleidoscope one will end up looking cool.
Some people came VERY prepared.
Art supplies everywhere!
There's always someone drawing pin-ups.
Bit of a Roy Lichtenstein tribute here.
This girl was seriously going to town on her drawing. There was another small tornado carrying a cow with a speech bubble that read, "Can I keep it??"
Last but not least! We stepped into an antique mall that runs alongside the drawing area. This goes on my list of Things I Don't Expect To See In The Antique Shop. A plastic Cousin Itt.
