It must be nice to have actual talent

The drawings in the photo above, and those below, are sidewalk art by Julian Beever. While they look 3-D, they are "anamorphic illusions drawn in a special distortion in order to create an impression of 3 dimensions when seen from one particular viewpoint." There are more examples on his website.

Wow, those are pretty cool. I like the Batman one the best.

yeh, it is the best!!!!!

I wonder how you know you can do that, do you start by drawing 3D on your coffee table and work up????

I've seen this guy's work. It's interesting when you walk around and take a picture of it from another angle and see what he actually drew.

Amazing.

you can walk around what I drew and see stick figures in all directions :)

Fantastoc, I wish I had a talent like that!

I wonder what he would charge to paint that swimming pool I've always wanted, might be cheaper than an actual pool.

Now that is graffiti that is worth seeing.

I've seen this guy's work before too, the one of Batman and Robin is just incredible.
