Chalking at Super City Rochester!

This is the first year for Super City Rochester. I had a great time and hope to be able to play there again next year! (maybe I can even figure out how to go bigger with the drawing…)

The event started at 10am and the street I was going to be working on wasn’t scheduled to be closed off until 8am. This didn’t give me very much time to get a head start before people started to arrive. I opted to try a stencil this time instead of the gridding system that I have been using at Perry. This was less time consuming on site, but a WHOLE lot of prep work at home with some (less than) helpful kitty assistance.

The stencil was moderately successful. I don’t know if I would do it the same way again but it is really nice having the proportions worked out ahead of time.

In previous chalking posts I have talked about having to stretch and extend the proportions in order to get the image to look “right” when viewed at an angle. This is the rough for my stencil that shows you the proportions of the drawing. If you viewed my chalked piece from directly above – this is the shape of it.

It’s hard to fully “get” in the photos.

Drawing done on the iPad so that I could stretch it to the correct proportions.

I didn’t take a photo of the stencil markings by themselves. The wind was quickly vanishing them. This is after chalking a rough outline over the stencil marks. AqEiZqRjQF67RnuCQostbA

My friend Jen came to visit before the official open of the event and took some photos for me. IMG_5138IMG_4582IMG_4581

Before she had to leave we gave the proper positioning a try. (Hi Jen!)


And back to chalking.

Grabbed this photo as I was leaving to go get lunch “just in case” something happened to it before I got back – but I didn’t wind up making it back after lunch. mknAUBkrQR+s4AzhVqY1zw

A couple people have sent me photos over the next few days. I won’t post them as even though it is holding up remarkably well for being driven over (and a decent size oil spot over the dragonfly) these pictures are better and we (I) would like to remember the nicest version of itself.

A big thank you to Magnus for thinking of me for this event and for Mark for inviting me to participate. I found out afterwards that this event was put together relatively quickly. They did a great job! With a whole year to plan the next one, I am hoping it will be even more amazing.
