    Wow! You’re talented! I’d like to see some other chalk art you’ve done. This fascinates me because I can barely draw a straight line with chalk, and then there are people who can create awesome art!! Kudos!!

    RIP Eric Carle. I was sad to hear of his passing but glad to hear he had such a long life. I snuggled up with my toddler and read a few from our library that evening.

    “The caterpillar had outgrown puny vegetables”

    *”He craved for the child.”*

    Nice work! You’ve really nailed it. Looks exactly like the book.

  6. rsplatpc says

    That is soooo well done!

    When are you thinking about doing the piece, how do you set it up to look like it’s really there? Is there math involved or do you just know in your head how to make it look like its on the sidewalk?

  10. HopsDrinker says

    No matter how many times I see these chalk drawings, I’m always amazed…I would do these all the time if I had the ability

  11. Khepri89 says

    How wide is that street?… or is this just a tiny kid? Or do I have no eye for perspective?

  12. Spiritbrand says

    In our house, we call that book “Eat until you Feel Pretty”.

  13. BigDeadPixel says

    This will probably get buried but what is the process to get the angle right? Projector? Constantly getting up and checking? Drones with future level AI?

  27. tripledjr says

    That garage and front door area are built at a completely different angle than the other side of the house. Or am I just losing it?

  28. Second-Mindless says

    Is the house crooked?

  29. Spyrothedragon9972 says

    Is it me or is that house sinking?

  30. feral_philosopher says

    To get the perspective right do you do the outlines with the aid of a projector? – and then take the photograph from where the projector was?

  31. KillionMatriarch says

    Utterly delightful!

  32. Carismatico says

  33. Disastrous_Reality_4 says

    I see things like this and it just amazes me that some people’s minds work in a way that allows them to create amazing things like this.

    Absolutely incredible.

    I absent mindedly wandered into this sub and clicked on this and did a cartoon double take

    This is awesome.

  37. Lockethegenius says

    For some reason as a young child, I had vivid nightmares about this caterpillar that I still 35 years later 😬

  38. -dgs3- says

    Lol I thought this was shopped at first

  39. Baxtron_o says

    How is the?….Apple on the street?…..The kid?…..

  40. bhampson says

    They say “never meet your heroes,” but I had the fortune of meeting Mr. Carle and he was as nice as you’d expect a renowned children’s author to be.

  41. UltimateBattleArena says

    Cool pic. You should post this in r/confusing_perspective if you haven’t already.

  42. alexlmlo says

    You are such a talent at such young age!

  43. jesusonice says

  44. Cartoonslut says

    That’s incredibly well done! Carle would be proud.

  45. mimentum says

    This is brilliant! A perfect tribute!

  46. JohnLayman says

    What chalk are you using? Or is it paint?

  47. my_life_cursed says

    So impressive. Perfectly nailed the perspective!

  48. pnjohnso says

    Dude this is incredible. You should do a series of these and sell the shit out of them. You are talented.
