Optical illusions: 3D sidwealk chalk drawings

I’ve shared with you some great three-dimensional artwork by Tracy Lee Stum and John Pugh. If you enjoyed those check out a great gallery on the Mighty Optical Illusions website for some more great chalk artwork – amazing how a little perspective in a drawing makes it almost come alive.

John Pugh's 3D art

John Pugh is a trompe l’oeil artist – someone who paints art that gives the illusion of something three dimensional.

You can see a small sample of his work below. For more take a look at this Daily Mail article here and some more pictures over here. [via DCP]
