Amazing sidewalk art

Check out this unbelievable artwork. It's not really gay-relevant, but since I found the link on Andrew Sullivan's website, it sort of counts. This is 2-dimensional sidewalk art that looks unmistakably 3-dimensional. What's more, it's anamorphic, meaning that it looks flat and distorted unless viewed from a precise angle. Enjoy!

Glad you all enjoyed them. I had heard of curved anamorphic messages that could only be read using specially and uniquely distorted, curved mirrors, but never anamorphic images that could be made to look normal without mirrors.

It's amazing enough that the guy could create such a realistic rendering of that laptop, but then to consider that it looks that way from only one angle is mind-blowing.
