Halloween seems to finally be catching on in SA, and our neighborhood was no exception! The homeowner’s association put on an organized walk-around, and told us there would be about 35 kids. I don’t know if they mis-counted, or we had some gate-crashers, or if it just seemed like 200 kids in the chaotic candy-grabbing, but we were overrun! I manned the door with our 3 bags of candy while John ransacked the pantry for anything remotely sweet (including a giant tray of fancy Ferrero Rocher chocolates, which made the trick-or-treaters QUITE happy).

You know what they say: if you want something done right, do it yourself! Our first CHALKIE, Savor was awesome, but after it languished on the wall for more than 3 months, I was ready for something new. Since no other artists had been commissioned by my partner in this project (*cough*JohnHawthorne*cough*), I decided to take another turn.
