Pavement Picasso

The Mental Floss Blog has an interesting post on the “Pavement Picasso” Julian Beever.  Beever got his start on pavement creations while he was attending art school; he would make two-dimensional chalk drawings and receive money from passers-by. He began experimenting with anamorphic trompe-l’oeil chalk creations after seeing tiles being removed from a street, an effect he tried to recreate on paper. Here is his flickr gallery and his website.
