The Return of Stickman #790 & Chalk Art

There is a small park in downtown Tacoma called Frost Park. When rumors were floating that a fence might be placed up around the park to keep out undesirables, some locals got a crazy idea. They would make the park a fun place to visit on their Friday lunch breaks by holding a weekly Chalk-Off Slam. Anyone is welcome to participate with free chalk on hand. Voting of on the art is done online on the Tacoma Urbanist blog. Rubbing elbows with a few of the other artists in Tacoma is a fun way to spend a lunch hour. I go when I have a chance. And this last Friday I won the slam with this tiki design.
