New 3D Sidewalk Art Taking World By Storm

It's been beautiful weather in San Francisco in the upper 60's, lower 70's lately.  During such rare weather, it's hard to find one's self in front of a computer blogging.  I've been spreading the news whenever I can to local artists about the 3D sidewalk art that's been taking over the world by storm.  I think this stuff is catching the eyes of companies who see it as a great way to advertise as well so there's money in it for the artists.
Julian Beever is an English chalk artist who has been creating chalk drawings on pavement since the mid-1990s that create the illusion of three dimensions when viewed from the right location. These trompe-l'oeil drawings are created using a projection called anamorphosis and appear to defy the laws of perspective. - The Incredible Art of Julian Beever! - HubPages

These 3D sidewalk drawings are by Julian Beever.
