Ephemeral Art: 3D Sidewalk Chalk

Already on this blog we’ve seen some amazing ephemeral art —  the foam of cappuccinos, sandcastles, The Gates, and a Rainbow Ribbon Jell-O Mold.

And then there’s sidewalk chalk art. Unbelievably vivid trompe l’oeil images. A lot of work is involved for something so short-lived that will all wash away with the first cloudburst.
