Sidewalk Art

A friend sent this my way, links to photos of the amazing 3D art of the "Chalk Guy" Julian Beever.

The pavement drawings are created in such a way to look real enough that people will step around ones that provide the illusion of the pavement dropping away. He describes them as "anamorphic illusions drawn in a special distortion in order to create an impression of 3 dimensions when seen from one particular viewpoint."

I think they are simply amazing.

He's done work across Europe as well as in the US -- I'd love to come across one of these!

(Thanks to Pam for the tip.)
