Julian Beever, I need your advice…

kidding1Don’t take this rating the wrong way. This is an expression of awe, not disgust.

Surely, by now, everyone has seen at least some of the chalk artwork created by Julian Beever. He has mastered the art of creating a 3-D image on a flat surface/sidewalk. 

So of course he has inspired me to at least explore the idea. I haven’t quite figured this out yet and am gripped by crippling pain in my hamstrings each time I try, but my level of fascination is greater than my disdain for the discomfort.


The Declaration of Independence and the tools to sign it


We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness


An ink bottle--about as 3-D as I've figured out yet!


Without further ado, let me show you how the master himself does it because I’m still baffled myself…

    I think you may need the folding stool/stomach prop. he sets up and leans on. I notice his knees remain bent most of the time. I bet he has some solid abs as a result. I sincerely think the magic tool is the mobile seat.

    I’ll have to make the female version of the folding stool/stomach prop. It looks none too comfy for those of use with slightly more than flat chests!
