: Amazing 3D chalk-on-concrete drawings

I was sent a bunch of these in an email message. Apparently this guy draws on sidewalks and streets, and some of his work is really amazing...herewith a few samples...

His name, so I gather, is Julian Beever...I have several more if there's any interest, or you can probably find examples on Google...

There are some in the Random pic thread and there are some that have a pic at a different angle to see how he creates the depth on the flat sidewalk.
The guy is amazing.

Thats insane! If I was walking along and I saw the batman and robin one I would be afraid I'd fall off the sidewalk and die!

Like BB posted, theres a site that shows how they are made and how LONG they actually are....really cool perspective stuff.

That's pretty cool stuff. In Santa Barbara and San Luis Obipo, CA they have annual art festivals with sidewalk chalk art. Talent ranges from similar to this guy and better to little kids just having fun. Some of the work is very remarkable.
