Paramount "Power of Youth" event.

A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to be a chalk artist for Variety's "Power of Youth" event held at Paramount Studios. The event was a benefit held for sick or at risk children. I was asked to do a sidewalk chalk mural for the kids. It was a lot of fun, despite it being pretty cold outside, but I'm a Southern California dweller, so I'm a wimp when it comes to cold.

The kids seemed to really enjoy the art and the entire day built around them. Some of them even wanted me to teach them how to draw! I basically did this mural on the fly out of my head. Enjoy!
