Over the weekend I attended the Pasadena Chalk Festival. I also attended last year. I love seeing the artist’s at work, the progress they make, and how their artwork truly comes out.
Below you can find some of my favorites:
This girl did a tribute of Whitney Houston. We talked with her a bit asking how she got involved. She’s been doing it since was 12 years old (13 years ago!) She says a lot of the artist’s recognize each other at these festivals, and she has gain someone friendships out of them.
She did a beautiful tribute of Whitney Houston. You can see the entire picture on the floor, and yes, she was able to complete it.
and boy oh boy I wish I could have been there when the question was actually asked. Further research, as in, the next day, turns out that she did say YES So congrats to the newest engaged couple, and what a great idea in asking her!
For the dog lovers out there, I took this shot for you
I talked to this artist a bit later in the day. She’s doing an entire drawing related to “Where the Wild Things Are.” What she’s working on in this picture is chopping her chalk down to little pieces then she’ll utilize paintbrushes to work with the chalk. She said she wasn’t feeling like being all stretch over her drawing that day
This was one of my favorites. This guy also had a pretty pimped out car to drive in. I would have loved to see the finished product =)
This artist is named Randall Williams. And he has an amazing talent. Just look at how smooth he can get a picture, and how much he can replicate such a picture. It’s pretty amazing to see.
Albert Einstein decided to join us
These were just a few of the artworks seen around the Paseo Colorado where the festival takes place every year in June! The Make Music Festival was also happening on Saturday where live bands, performers, with craft vendors onboard to admire and look upon.
I hope you can make it out next year. It’s pretty incredible seeing the beautiful drawings come to life =)
