Indio Chalk festival, Day 1.

I spent much of the day folded up on Miles Ave in Indio, wearing out my fingerprints, making my knees and hips sore, and straining my back.  This is for a big competition.  Well, big for me, anyway.  I’ll let the pictures paint the thousand words as my fingers are sore from rubbing chalk into the blacktop.

More corrections on the face. Being faceblind isn’t easy – I think** it kinda** looks like me, but I’m not sure.

The field is in. I’m not entirely happy with this part and might rework it later.

Blocking in the left hand. OK, I’m done for the day.
