I wonder what they look like from other angles?

If I was mayor of some city I would pay the guy a salary just to wander around drawing those every day. Imagine how cool that would be.

I got this in my mail a few days ago. Pretty damn cool shit - I'm still marvelling at it.

These are very cool. Thanks very much.

That's awesome. What makes the photos even better is that they're all taken at a time of day so that the angle the light hits the real word at is the same as the angle of the light source used in the drawings, making them look extra real.

Am I the only one who finds the Sony laptop one a bit creepy? Not horror-movie creepy, but ad-creep creepy, that is. I wouldn't care if it was some generic laptop, but somehow the brand-logo desktop sets it off just the wrong way.

Then again, I would have said the same thing about Warhol's soup cans in the '60s.

Then again, Warhol would've been the first to call himself a sell-out.

I hope this girl can give credit to the artist who painted these works. It's a shame to credit him as "this English guy."

At least we know that Kurt Wenner did the paintings in the middle of the page, though.
