    They were done by an artist named Julian Beever on the streets of England and i've never seen anything quite as cool and unique, enjoy...

    I started to write which ones I particularly liked and I kept adding another and another. These are fabulous.

    Those made the rounds at work last year or so -- his website is well worth looking at, as there are more pictures showing them out of perspective. Seing them "flat" gives a even better sense of the artist's skill.

    I enjoy the first and last the best. The Coke bottle is almost photographic. The final one, I love the integration of him into the scene and the complexly depcited story it suggests.

    Yeah, I wouldn't have thought it was even possible to make 2D drawings that looked so 3D, let alone with chalk on a sidewalk. The first time I saw some of these being emailed around, I thought they were fake photos.

    Sure puts most of the forced perspective stuff that Hollywood does to shame.

    Maybe the most amazing thing is that someone with this talent is making all these works of art that won't last, due to where they are and what they're made of.

    How does he keep people from messing them up while he's drawing them? It must take a long time to do one.
