Luckily, the rain waited just long enough for the official photographers and judges to finish. What a refreshing finish to a grueling 16 hours of intense labor! I deem the 2nd annual Round Rock Chalk Walk a success, and look forward to improving my art for next year.

This year I chose to create an anamorphic drawing using forced perspective to give that 3D feel. I borrowed a photograph taken by Stephen Morton in Georgia during Hurricane Irene. After running it through a computer program called Anamorph Me, I gridded it out so I could transfer it to the pavement, then made sure to take lots of pictures throughout the 2 days to show progress. I ran out of time to fill in the entire 10′x10′ square, so I let the asphalt represent the beach sand of the photo. While it technically works, I can’t help but think it would have looked much better completed. Next year I’ll try to find a helper or work with a partner to finish in the allotted time.
