Works by Julian Beever

The other day we read a text about Julian Beever, a brilliant British pavement artist. We learnt his pictures are three dimensional. Here are a couple of interesting videos. In the first one you'll see Julian actually creating a picture, with his pieces of chalk and his camera. The second one is a compilation of some of his pictures. What's your favourite one?
