Thirteen of my favorite sidewalk chalk drawings

I have been fascinated by artist Julian Beever since the first sidewalk chalk drawing I saw in an email. He's a 3D chalk artist from England, and in case you aren't familiar with his work, I thought I'd share some of his newer work, along with some of my favorites. Here they are, in no particular order:

I like the lobster and the baby. So funny.

I like your template like it is. :) I bet you can just modify when you move to WP. I love so many of the WP features, but my favorite Blogger features is the TEXT stuff. In WP, there aren't any buttons that I have seen for changing text color, size, font. I love how easy Blogger is to use.

However, I absolutely love the clean design of WP, the comment relish, the neat widgets, etc. They really have a great product!

I just can't figure out how to design them. I'm a OLD-timer with a beloved classic blogger template.

ABSOLUTELY amazing... I've seen a few of these before and just analyze them in amazement! Incredible!

Those are really cool!

Those are kind of cool and freaky all at the same time. I wish I had a tiny little speck of the artistic talent it takes to create those.

I have seen this guy's work before, yet I never fail to be amazed. These are fabulous!

Clara said...

I really love Beever's work! I like to see the pics from a different angle, too. They're so weird if you aren't in the right spot. Great post!

Clara said...

Oh, I forgot to say how much I like your header! I just love the quote. I'm going to use it with some of my more pessimistic friends. ^_^

These are absolutely amazing! I've never seen this artist before. WOW! Thanks for sharing!

Denise Patrick said...

Wow!! Great Pictures. This guy really has talent - I can see myself coming upon one and going-whoa! It looks like you could step right into one.

Happy TT!

I have always been fascinated by these sidewalk drawings. I hadn't seen the Santa one. That is so fun!! Thanks for sharing.

How amazing! Some people are so stinking talented!

I can eat an entire pound of bubble gum in a day. Less than a day, really, but nobody seems to care about documenting it.

sorry for the burp.

My talent doesn't seem to extend to the skill of posting.

Jendi said...

I, too, have always been amazed at his paintings.

Did you see the pictures that are at the "wrong" angle? It's amazing how he has to draw things to make them look 3D.
