Wow . . . it's certainly all about perspective, isn't it?

Amazing.

His work really is fun to look at. Somewhere on the web I've seen snapshots of his drawings from the wrong direction, and they really show what perspective causes.

I have one shot in my post of the drawing from the wrong side. You can really see how stretched out the raft is. I put a link to his web site where you can see a bunch more drawings, including some "wrong way" shots. Here's what I found most interesting... I had assumed that he did a fairly detailed sketch on a grid and then put a "distorted perspective" grid on the pavement. That's certain what *I* would do. But he just sets up his camera and then draws a little bit and goes back and looks through the camera and draws a little more and just keeps doing that for hours on end.

How dare he do that in public while wearing shorts!!

Actually I love his work. He is amazing.
