Sidewalk Art

These are spectacular! I swear that coke bottle is real! The depth they achieve is truly amazing. I once saw a program on PBS that featured a couple of guys in Europe that were sidewalk artists. They didn't have much $$$$ so they made their pastels. They spent hours and hours on a drawing, people would toss money into a hat (their income) and if it started raining while they were in the process, they'd cover it up with plastic till it stopped. Sometimes there was nothing they could do, they were washed away too soon. These were incredible labors of love that were not permanent.
