I get a lot of questions about what kind of chalk do I use, and what kind doesn't stain, etc., so I decided to do a test. 

When I chalk, I use a combination of different chalks.  I take into consideration the surface, the weather, the colors of the piece, how long I have to complete the piece and how detailed it is.  Different chalks are better for different things.  As you can see from this first picture, some chalks work better for detail and others are better for intense color and coverage.

Been a fan of your work for years and didn't even know! each piece I admired the most to all the shows I've been to was connected to the same artist! Truly admiring and inspirational!

I have a question though, I'm still rather new to street painting and I'm having a hard time finding the large boxes of the bricks of chalk/ soft pastels. Was wondering if you had a link to someplace I could order from!

anywho! awesome work! Hope to see you at an event sometime soon!

I buy the big sticks from Eternity Arts in Michigan. They are kind of expensive, but they are soft and a good for large areas of intense colors. www.EternityArts.com
