The bean on Navy Pier?

Progress shot… the beginnings of another freehand anamorphic 3D chalk drawing. I love doing this dance with the canvas… it’s where I feel in my element!

July 18th I brought a ChalkWalker(Tm) piece to Navy Pier and worked on many details as part of the entertainment for a large international corporate party. Here are some shots of that process and what it looked like at the Pier.

Champ Demonstrates 3D Chalk Art at Events for CPS and Illinois schools.

This September I had the privilege of going into several inner city neighborhoods to add an artistic element to the educational process right here in Chicago. I spoke at several schools and drew 3D pieces for most of them as well. The children, staff, volunteers and parents were fabulous and friendly making the events during and after school memorable and hopefully life changing in a truly positive way!!

Adler Planetarium – Eclipse 2017 Summary

 

On August 21st, 2017 North America bore witness to a historic Solar Eclipse and I was privileged to be asked by Adler Planetarium to help them celebrate!

Initially I was told to expect about 10,000 to attend the party and witness my chalk art on the Chicago lakefront, but on last count we were well over the 40,000 mark! It was certainly a wonderful day and the eclipse did not disappoint despite on-and-off clouds all day. We got great participation in my freehand 3D chalk art all day. I made sure to finish it by 11am so we could have the most time for people to pose with this one!

To top it off I had the privilege of chalking with two time Chalk Art Champion, Cole Fasano on not one but TWO pieces.

Tequitta Lucas poses atop another Chicago Chalk Champ 3D piece. I’ll update this space with more photos and video later!
