Escaping the Boundaries of Art


This year I did not even know what I was doing till the day before. This almost won runner up for Peoples Choice award. It did not turn out exactly as I planned but it worked out very nice in other ways.

This is made completely using Koss Soft Pastel Chalk. And it was for Expressions in Chalk which is an annual street painting festival in London Ontario.

The two characters, while I normally let the kids decide if they looked like a character they knew, are actually by own designs. Many of my online fans will recognize them right away as Nora (on the right) who is based on myself, and Levar on the left who is her mate.

I am wearing a bag on my head cause that morning when the London Free Press came my art was shown... well Levar anyway, in the paper (along with two of our featured artists... which blew me away alone) but since they must have come around during a bathroom break they never found out my name and listed me in the paper as THE UNKNOWN ARTIST. So it became my new name and alias at the event this year. Which gave it a whole other side to the fun. Many people came just to find out who this unknown artist was.

Longest wait ever for a reply. LOL. If you still use your account and ever see this, awesome that you got to see. I could not be in for the 2009 one as I had moved to Florida to work at Walt Disney World for their one year program. (Got to play the part of a Canadian... hard stuff. lol. ;) ) I think I took part in 2010 when I got back but ended up getting really sick. I had then moved back to Florida to go to school and work at Disney and Universal Studios for a few years. Then moved back here. I have thought about going back in again, I even have a picture I want to do. Who knows, if I ever catch it on time when they are accepting applications I will send in mine and try again. :)

I was mad at first. But it was great for me. People came and wanted to shake my hand and meet this unknown artist. I had people say they just had to come out and see who the unknown artist was and I was like "Don't you remember who does the lion king on each year." LOL. But it really made my day. I thought it was bad at first but was surprised how popular it actually made me in the community. :P :D

Oh, well then that's great! LOL they didn't know you were the one doing it every year? >.< Well, at least you are popular now. I think it came out amazing. I'd want to shake your hand, that's for sure. :3
