Surprise! The event I organized last week was a huge success and made the front page of the Local paper! It was a really amazing day with people really wanting to express themselves. Chalk 4 Peace is an International event that takes over the worlds sidewalks and streets and lets people express themselves through free expression-Its held yearly but I want to do something like this again very soon!! The kids were so free-a great lesson for those of us who are stuck! It was a hot day -you can check out more poictures on my Flickr account ...and tomorrow I will be creating an infinite banner with ArtPeace-a group Ive recently become involved with, at the We Love Long Beach picnic. It will kick off a years worth of events that involve children and peace-what could be better!? Im hoping its not too hot-or that we will be in the shade! I will place a link on the side for this too!

WILD NIGHT IN FROGTOWN! Thats a new art district that is well, pretty rough-near Dodger stadium
I went to see my friends work-hard at work painting on live ladies-go to my Flickr site for more The Mannequins were amazing-all so totally different-theres no way you can say these are not artists of the highest caliber. Thanks was there painting but I missed Steam and Paka-they may have been there-there were hundreds of people there! Amazing live painting by Koffe-twirling the flat brush in a way calligraphers can only dream of!

You must visit their website ( click on the title above for pics of the event itself) and see the incredible work these unsung till now heroes are doing ( and I dont mean the way overhyped heroes on tv) What a pleasure to do this work for them
I have been busy getting ready for the Local Chalk 4 Peace event that I organized-Its a global project that I am holding Friday at my farmer' market-Its going to be great day of art and kids and excitement!www.chalk4peace.org
