I was lucky enough to take part in this years chalk mural competition put on by the City of Stirling. The theme for this years competition was “A Night at the Movies”. I chose to illustrate a couple out together at the Astor Theatre, I wanted to avoid depicting a “Marilyn Monroe hanging out with James Dean” scene, which I really can’t stand.
It was the first time I’d worked in chalk in this way (the blackboard at work is a quite different), so it was a huge learning experience. Note for next time: bring sponges, and a ton more chalk. That stuff just evaporates!
