In spite there was another 3d chalk drawing article posted few days ago, when I found these two shots, they really looked somehow special. The artist behind “The Sink” is a person that goes under nickname mydogsighs. He created this piece at the Southsea Skate Park in south England. Is it only me or can you smell Julian Beever influence from miles away?

“With the exception of the center crew and the black holes, this was pretty much free hand. Getting the perspective on the drop in the center was a nightmare, but worth all the hard work (well, i think so)” – My Dog Sighs.

Apart from writing more about what you can see on the photos yourselves, there isn’t much more to add – we already discussed everything in this field. More on the personal side, I’d like to mention how I heard about this twisted club called “The Box” located in NYC. Apparently its visited by native New Yorkers only, and gives a really unique burlesque experience. Hope I manage to make a reservation for it, while on my NYC trip. Any advice how can I make sure I get in some of the popular NYC clubs, without being left outside waiting?  Some tips you locals would like to share? Anyone wants to be my “reference” on this quest? Can’t wait to read your comments on this…

Are these kids so small, or is it some sort of mega sink?

  • Bob

    poorly done. i’ve seen much better

    • Someone

      Agreed on that.

  • http://aol.com Alex

    like u could do better

  • irving

    why am i always banned?… I agree, this is not the best!

  • Solsp

    Its not that bad…
    Although it need a little something.
    Besides…Bob…although you’ve probably seen better, I seriously doubt that you could do anything like that.

  • chris

    its just a bowl at a skate park

  • brittany-bella

    it looks nice

  • CAM

    hmm… almost looks like it was done on the computer…

    Tend to agree with bob about the actual final outcome but the prospect is freaking great. the kids would love it

  • Suicidal ‘Ling

    how could u say its poorly done? at least its pretty good. it has the drain, droplets and the stopper zzz

  • bas

    i think it’s a great and fun idea, but, indeed, it’s a little bit missformed,
    it’s cool though

  • Irene

    Really cool, but water drops don’t really look real… For a moment I thought they were metal rings…

    Heh, I broke my arm at that skate park about 25 years ago. Looking down into that bowl, you really don’t need an illusion to freak you out… that thing was scary when I was 12. ;)

  • kane

    Ok Bob I am sure you have! “Poorly done”? Come on!

    It looks great.

  • jones

    i would like to see you do better then “bob”
    you probably wouldnt be able to start something like that

  • T

    i like it, and its practically local :)

  • lisa

    i think it’s a great idea, but badly realized..

  • Lady Hinata

    The water droplets don’t look very realistic. They need colour or something.

    But otherwise VERY good! It would be cool learning how to draw 3D chalk drawings! ^^

  • bdd

    Oh, come on. This is great.

    Oh, as far as NYC clubs go, have a couple of hot chicks on your arm, and bring some cash, lots of cash, in case you get in.

  • Friend of Detective Kitty

    it’s good if it’s the first time…not the best though but I’ll give the guy credit cause I wouldn’t be able to do this…

  • Wim

    Here is an other nice streetpainting:

    http://www.mega3d.nl/

  • http://Www.mydogsighs.com Mydogsigh

    It’s not chalk but graffitti paint. Chalk would have been much easier but I wanted it to last longer than 20 mins.
    My first attemp at anything resembling optical illusion.

    Looking forward to see bob’s work!

  • Delishia Harding

    Not bad i quess but its only 2 kids in a sink anyonne can see that…!

    DUH! YOU MUST BE STUPID NOT TO NOTIS THAT!…
    (if you didn’t notes it ws 2 kids in a sink no efence)

  • nmas

    i agree with u it is just awful!

  • E
