Default What this guy does with chalk is UNREAL!

Just got this e-mail and couldn't believe the detail. It's unreal! It's done with chalk.

I could do that if I wanted to. I just don't want to.

That's amazing. What's as amazing is the shot of what the wrong angle looks like. I mean it's hard to distinguish.

Not too shabby. I guess he gets paid to do pictures of products? Like coke or sony. What a way to make a living.

being two dimensional, I am thinking they ONLY look good from one direction to get the 3-D effect.
I STILL want him to paint the side of my garage, though. Wonder if he would like an all expense paid trip to a small tropical island....

the drawings are drawn out and distorted so they only look "right " from eye level in one direction.......from above they look like the image you got when you took a silly putty transfer of a comic book illustration and pulled it to distort it (anyone old enough to know what im talkin about here?).....so gringo is exactly right......the drawings themselves are distorted........the trick is how he knows how much to distort them so they look correct and in proper perspective as you approach them.....a good example is the globe.....the drawing is more watermellon shaped than round
