Chalk it Up to Experience

This is a lazy, day after a holiday post. On March 2, 2006, someone sent me an e-mail about a British artist whose public chalk drawings appear to be quite phenomenal.

It's all a matter of perspective, as is exhibited by this example. The wrong view:

Pretty amazing stuff. You can see these and more examples here.
