A pipe smoking Picasso prepares to pastel a beachcomber in this 1934 snapshot taken in Atlantic City.
Still common, especially in Manhattan where dozens of Asian chalk artists clog the streets, the instant portrait is ten dollars well spent. Simply pick the one showing off the best drawing of Beyonce or Prince, sit down and you will have a cardboard tube to carry the rest of the day (and to fit in the overhead on the way home)
Note our painter here has set up next to one of the remarkable sand sculptures covered on the blog earlier. Atlantic City, Disneyland of the East!
