If you thought 3D chalk drawings were dead, then think again! They’re back baby, and they’re here to stay! It has passed so much time since we last talked about them, the irony is we probably need to re-introduce Julian Beever, a pioneer artist when it comes to anamorphic pavement art. Which of these few drawings you find the most realistic? Could any of them fool you if you encountered them in real life? Which one did you find the most interesting? Tell me, tell me…

Julian Beever is Back... Again!

    First! :P

  2. :) says:

    pretty cool :)

  3. ruby says:

    i think the fourth one (gordon brown)isn’t the most realistic, but it’s by far the best.

  4. anonymous says:

    to me, the second one looked the most realistic.

  5. Care Bear says:

    Beautiful. Boggles the mind.

  6. Greeng13 says:

    D water one with the big-headed freak would have foled me preaty well! I fal really easily 4 dis kind of stuff.

  7. becca says:

    thts cool

  8. MartistM says:

    The covered image is great. Even knowing the illusions, I thought on first glance it was waiting to be uncovered to expose the image. All are great images.

  9. nagfa says:

    Nice set, this.

    The brilliance of the hidden Mona Lisa one is in how Julian made the sidewalk tiles work in the illusion. The tiles came of ‘natural’, as seen through the transparency of the film / plastic.

  10. Dustin says:

    The one with the bird landing in the water really had me there for a second. I think this type of art is awesome.

  11. Jacob says:

    nice! i think the piping one seemed the most realilistic

  12. Brad says:

    Good stuff! This is what i like to see here :) Keep it up ;)

  13. Hello says:

    coool!it looks like it’s real i’m nearly fooled

  14. anon says:

    I’ve seen better, and what the hell is wrong with that second picture? it looks like the wrong perspective to me.

  15. himcules says:

    simply genius

  16. These are so good! I really like the last 2. And the mona lisa one looks the most likely to stump me if I ran into it on the street.

  17. The Ultimate Illusion says:

    i love the underground city one

  19. peace-angel says:

    You never grow tired of looking at these, such awesome detail.

  20. qwertyuiop says:

    i like the bird one and the skyscraper one

  21. Grace says:

    i personally liked the first one and the last three the best…. i thought they were most realistic… :)

  22. Lol says:

    i like the one where it looks like they a pooring money into a drain XD, probably because it looks the most believeable.

  23. Siona says:

    In the first one, the actual edging and tunnel part looked very realistic but the man looked too much like a drawing to be real. I liked them all, ecspecially the last 2!

  24. psb says:

    The last one gets my goat with the kid standing on the edge, I can’t hardly believe the others. The plastic covered Mona Lisa is very good, I’d probably look twice. Still, even tho I wasn’t fooled, what an artist!

  25. Christopher Jarvis says:

    These are really good! We need some for tomorrow! The fly spray? The piles of gold? Redo them!!!!!!!!

  26. Florin793 says:

    The nr.4 (election)pic is the best!

  27. As always with Beaver – Like it!

    But it would be nice, if i is possible to see the paintings from other angles! How does it look from the other sides??
    Anyone know any links to pictures like that?

  29. enjoynature says:

    I like the pond/shore drawing. Notice the reflection of a house and tree that’s not there.

  30. jerosite says:

    I think the Levi’s one is the best!

  31. Joann says:

    All drawings are AWESOME!!!

    Each one a stroke of genious…..

  32. Valerie says:

    As usual this guy is fantastic! I love them all but my favourite is the one with the baby peering over the side. Yes I know that it is not real but there is no way that would walk on any of them. Too SCARED!

  33. Quangdao says:

    Is that kid about to jump of that building in the fifth one? I’m pretty sure she knows it’s fake because of the angle she’s at.

  34. Chad says:

    Dang, all those are EXCELLENT. I think the pipe one is the most realistic but they all look real. But I think I like the water one the best. The water looks so real.

  35. woah says:

    The second last one was REALLY cool.

  36. Eric G Haverkamp says:

    Absoluteley BRILLIANT!

  37. Cockney Cowboy says:

    Just the best

  38. Brian Peralta says:

    whats with the fourth one? whos the man in the costume suppose to be? anyways i like the one about the underground pipes

  39. josephine says:

    I like the other guy better

  40. IAMCHEESE says:

    that one with the man and the girl about to jump off the building is creeping me out…im gonna have nightmares… oh and i really like this website :D

  41. mnady says:

    lol all them would fool me i would be scared of the building

  42. anon says:

    to iamcheese: i reckon the girl’s looking down, not jumping off bulidings.

    i reckon the pipes are the most realistic!!1

  43. tert says:


  44. Brassrhino says:

    Thumbs Up if you thought it said “Justin Beever”! Wait, wut?

  45. laney says:

    so cool

  46. Bee says:

    AWWW. the little girl on the 5th 1 makes it sooo cuteee

  47. Anonymous says:

    The problem with the second question is the fact that you don’t know which side of the picture you will see first. The trick with these is that you have to come in at a certain side and angle to see the picture.

  48. Sharron Michael says:

    Love ‘em all but Mona Lisa is my favorite. Please keep up the good work.

  49. hi there says:

    I like the one on the bottom left cuz the little child really thinks it is 3D and looks like he/she is looking down which really adds to the 3D-ness of it.

  50. Ross Hill says:

    Am i the only one who sees “Justin Bieber” when you glance at his name? That’s an optical illusion in itself!

  51. laura says:

    hi i thing the last image is the best

  52. justin says:

    would laughf

  53. justin says:
