For the third year in a row, (2013,2014,2015) I will be featured in Owensboro, KY for the East Bridge Art and Music Festival. This year, the fest moves to the now completed (and awesome btw) river’s edge park for even more family friendly fun. I will be drawing from 9am to noon on Saturday, September 5th and then headed to Kewanee, IL for HOG DAYS. There, on Sunday, September 6, I will be drawing from 9am to noon as well. If you are near either of these events this weekend, head over and say “hello!” IF you arrive about noon you can get your picture INSIDE the 3D illusion and post it to social media! See you there!!! **(pictures posted of these events now on the Chicago Chalk Champ Facebook fan page! )**
