It has been a busy Spring 2011 for my fellow artists and I with Art for After Hours (AfAH) with projects ranging from corporate conference entertainment and launches to large scale work for nonprofit arts events across the USA. We have found ourselves in the niche of positioning our artist teams into potential exhibition events in the USA and internationally which made Wendy and I think about what we are doing and what we would like to add to our growing mix of street painting (chalk) art services.

Wendy and I have been at this for over 10 years, I being an international 3D street painting artist who has had the opportunity to share my art at festivals and events around the world through my company Art for After Hours with some of the best 3D street painters over the years and the future looks positive
Wendy has been and is a strong supporter of street painting festivals with me at AfAH. Innovative Street Painting Group, with our blog 'Blog Now on streetpainting.tv' and our user generated video channel streetpainting.tv have been at street painting festivals in the USA and Mexico, interviewing numerous street painting artists about their art and festival directors about their events. Our blog is read internationally by street painting artists, festival directors, and in some groups is considered a source of straightforward postings presenetd in a journalistic manner. It is this interest in street painting and our desire to grow and share it with an ever growing audience worldwide.
