Chalk it Up for Literacy -Portland, OR

Lee Moyer's "Odin" poster from 2004

I am going to participate in the 5th annual "Chalk it Up for Literacy" event in Portland, Oregon on August 4th, 2007 from 10am-4pm in Pioneer Courthouse Square. I did this event in 2004 and it was tons of fun. That year, it was held under a tent at the Portland Art Museum because of rain. But, usually it is held outdoors. About 40 or so artists and illustrators will create posters in chalk "live" between 10am and 4 pm. The art will be sold later to benefit Oregon Literacy, Inc. This is a really good cause! "Everyone has a right to literacy." I hope to see my artist friends and also meet some new Portland people this year. Read more about it here:
