Terrible Yellow Eyes - Chalk Thing

A while ago I found a little piece of blue chalk. I brought it home and drew on the driveway with it.


Erin ended up getting me a whole little tub of sidewalk chalk but then fall came and winter came and I never really used it.

Then a couple weekends ago we were babysitting my nephew and playing outside. I had just cleaned out the garage that day and rediscovered the chalk. A perfect storm for monster drawing on the driveway. I'd like to think I used the time in between ventures to adapt and improve my methods :

Behold, my final piece :
