Dutch street painter Leon Keer (previously featured here) recently spent three days in the city of Nijmegen in the eastern Netherlands creating a new piece of awesome anamorphic art for an international drawing festival called The Big Draw. Although it doesn’t seem like it when viewing it from the front, this painting measures about 15 meters (~50 ft) long.

It depicts a little girl sitting in an empty trunk playing make-believe with her dog friend. The illusion is so convincing that, the first time we looked at the top photo, we didn’t realize the second girl perched on the inside of the lid of the trunk is a live person posing with the artwork and not part of the actual painting.

Now it waits patiently to draw from our blood.
