Video of some truly impressive trompe l'oeil (link roundup)



This video shows the creation of some really incredible trompe l'oeil pavement art by Edgar Muller - - it's supposed to depict a new ice age in Ireland, and the illusion makes it look like the artists are suspended in midair as they work. There's more street art here.

And a few more links:

2. I'm not crazy about the site design, but wow, brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman have used model railroad miniatures to create an incredible depiction of the undead conquering the Third Reich. Well worth your time. Via.
