Most of "Ship of Fools" by Troy's Work Table. Frost Park Chalk Off Challenge 6:30. Friday 25 October 2013.

Captain America steers our course.

One of the Octoballoons attached to the rigging of the ship.

The parade of fools.


The sixth season of Frost Park Chalk Off Challenge comes to a close. I learned a lot this year by watching how others chalk. I also learned a lot by studying master artists, especially those working in engraving and woodcutting—Goya, Posada, Bruegel, Bosch.

"Ship of Fools" was my favorite piece to chalk this year, especially on the heels of "Woodcut Demons." I loved seeing these works fill up my own "corner" of Frost Park, albeit temporarily, before the rains came and cleaned the canvas.

Now I have a fall and winter to sketch and dream and draw and study, preparing myself for another season of chalking in April.
