Denver-based artist Chris Carlson who is known for his work with 3D chalk illusions created a great stop motion Tetris game. The shading, perspective and motion is incredibly spot-on. You can see more of his video game and pop-culture influenced chalk drawings over on Tumblr. (via the awesomer)
Hand me a piece of chalk and a sidewalk and you’ll be lucky to get a pretty flower or maybe a few weird geometric scribbles. Hand it to François Pelletier and you’ve got something else all together. The artist is known for transferring famous paintings onto streets and sidewalks using carefully blended layers of colored chalk. Any of you art historians recognize the painting he’s holding in his hand? My friend Hrag suggested it might be William-Adolphe Bouguereau, but we couldn’t find a positive match.
Update: Turns out Hrag was right, the painting is La Treille by William-Adolphe Bouguereau. (thnx, william!)
Update: An earlier version of this post attributed this as the chalk art of ‘Horocue’. The work is actually that of François Pelletier. (thnx, philippe!)
