Happy Monday Everyone! Though this is not a "funny" 4PM Happy Hour, it's still pretty amazing. Thanks to my buddy Adam for today's content.
CHALK GUY IS BACK
I don't think that this guy is from earth. He is phenomenal to say the least and I always love to see his new creations.
Hard to believe that these are drawn on a FLAT sidewalk surface
Edgar Mueller Super Artist
Great Crevase Edgar Mueller. Hard work: Together with up to five assistants,
Mueller painted all day long from sunrise to sunset.
The picture appeared on the East Pier in Dun Laoghaire , Ireland ,
as part of the town's Festival of World Cultures.
He spent five days, working 12 hours a day, to create the 250 square metre image of the crevasse, which, viewed from the correct angle, appears to be 3D. He then persuaded passers-by to complete the illusion by pretending the gaping hole was real.
'I wanted to play with positives and negatives to encourage people to think twice about everything they see,' he said. 'It was a very scary scene, but when people saw it they had great fun playing on it and pretending to fall into the earth. 'I like to think that later, when they returned home, they might reflect more on what a frightening scenario it was and say, "Wow, that was actually pretty scary."
Mueller, who has previously painted a giant waterfall in Canada , said he was inspired by the British 'Pavement Picasso' Julian Beever, whose dramatic but more gentle 3D street images have featured in the Daily Mail.
No LeBron and Bosh? No problem. Joakim Noah will just console himself with a night on the couch eating Funyuns and watching QVC. And the water pipe? Well that's for tobacco use only, as the law clearly indicates.

). At the time, Noah was recovering from plantar fasciitis, an ailment that would sideline him for nearly a month.
The Bulls, caught off guard when we alerted them to the photos, gave us an official "no comment."
