Pavement art : Julian Beever

Was mucking around in Facebook when I came across this. Utterly cool!

Julian Beever is an artist who specialises in drawings on pavements, walls and some fine art. I think his pavement drawings are the coolest as they are "Anamorphic illusions drawn in a special distortion in order to create an impression of 3 dimensions when seen from one particular viewpoint." Sounds like something I learnt in uni during our Optical Electronics classes.

Wow. How does he do it? How does he calculate his anamorphic distortions when he paints? Does he use software and then trace out the outlines with a projector - or is his coordination that good?
