Julian Beever and Kurt Wenner, are both amazing artist who draw their pictures on sidewalks all around the world. The 3-D effect is unbelievable. Several weeks ago Science Guy and I watched a documentary on Julian Beever. Over the course of several days (all put into an hour show thanks to the miracle of TV time), we watched as he created one of his masterpieces.

Here’s the thing. The pictures below are but a few of his finished pieces and what you are seeing is the picture looking through the lens of a camera. Not a special camera, but an ordinary camera. If you were to look at it with out the lens it would be hard to see exactly what certain things are. The woman’s leg goes on for probably twelve feet.

That alone amazes me as to how he envisions his art work with such abstract lines and outlandish over drawn lengths.

Hope you enjoy the Friday Fun.

Have a wonderful weekend!

That's awesome! It's hard to believe that the drawings are truly done on flat surfaces! I love stuff like this and am amazed at the talent, imagination, and creativity artists like this have. Thanks for sharing!!
