As a little bit of refurbishment on an earlier, faded piece, I worked on this star at 18th and Church, at the NW corner of Duboce park. The unusual lines of the 7 point star confounded me a bit. The strong abscence of radial symetry and the thick outline create a strange rhythymic visual movement.

Work from the day of July 26th.
To my amusement, I was invited to be a 'guest artist' at a local neighborhood 'chalkboard news paper'. And this is exactly what it sounds like. A couple of dudes in a studio/garage, writing up news items on chalkboards. Apparently it was inspired by a Liberian chalkboard news service. The name of their operation, which I like, is "Periodical: Power Outages". Related to one of their first story items, I believe.
I had been wanting to render a woman/bird shapeshifter for some time, and the location was an excellent one. I was satisfied with the white outline, and by the time the sun had set I had filled in a good amount of the color.

After arriving in Monterey on a short trip, I had a chance to complete a quick geometric star at the East Village Coffee Lounge. It was a warm, beautiful day to draw.
I hadn't brought my full chalk kit, so I had to improvise a bit with some of the tools and have my brother help me with the layout.
During the day drawing there, I saw some friends and their kids, ran into some hackers I know (ha ha! The photo I took of them after we'd been hacking for a while looks like it could be a scene from that silly-ass Twilight movie!) and a cute red haired girl studying her language homework.
I was fortunate to have a chance to go out to Tassajara the next day: a zen hot springs deep in the hills past Carmel Valley. There is a photo of the grass on the hillside bobbing in the breeze with the sun behind it.
