Chalk Mafia

2020 Chalk Mafia Epic Virtual Chalk Fest

It’s the middle of summer and Covid-19 still has all outdoor gatherings cancelled! That still doesn’t stop us from making art at home. This year I participated in Chalk Mafia’s first annual Epic Virtual Chalk Fest for the Fourth of July weekend. I challenged myself by creating a flag with lots of folds in it.

Starting to chalk the US flag
And so it begins! My 8′ x 8′ chalk square, which is right next to the last square I chalked last month.
US flag art, almost finished
Almost there! This is about half-way through, it was really hot too. I really love how all of the folds are coming out. I should try this type of art more often.
Picture of the finished art
Finished! My house is ready for the Fourth of July now.

2020 San Gabriel Lunar New Year

Lunar New Year is the most celebrated holiday in Asia with many large festivals and events held around the world. The San Gabriel Lunar New Year Festival is a unique festival that consists of a Street Food Fair, Marketplace, Kids Zone, and Chalk Art! The 2020 Lunar New Year is the Year of the Rat, so our squares this year consisted of cute little scoundrels, coincidently, the Old World rat or “true rat” originated in Asia.

And so the chalking begins…
Finished! The Chinese writing in the bottom corner says “Good Luck”.
