One year I took the etching of the block back to the block it depicted and, while the block was closed to traffic, translated the images into the 14 feet by 25 feet section on this Festival day of chalk drawing. The entire block was engaged in doing chalk drawings of various sizes but mine was directed towards replicating the full etching in color. Soon it became evident it was a lot of surface to cover alone in seven hours but hopefully one of my nephews and my childhood friend Mark and his kids showed up after a few hours to help flesh it out and keep my spirits up. Shown here from this fifth-floor fire-escape perspective is a view of Mark and I looking up after it was done. Note: Mark had just spent extra time covering a nasty oil leak on the street with lots of chalk and transforming one of my “etched sedans” into a nifty, red Ferrari.
