Very nice and so life-like. Reminded me a bit of trompe l'oeil paintings--- just a bit.

Here is one sidewalk trompe l'oeil 'painting':

Amazing.
I'd like to know what ball point pens went into that red haired girl. Perfect right down to the fair colored skin.

Just beautiful.

I can testify that such artists exist. When my daughter was in her twenties she was very seriously dating and living with a wonderful young man. He was/is an artist.

Buck and I were invited to their apartment for dinner one evening and on the walls of the entryway there were many, many framed photos (we thought) of lovely young women. They were exquisitely beautiful. Stunning. Each one increasingly more breathtaking than the one before it.

We commented on them and were bowled over to learn that Stanton had drawn them.

My daughter posted it on her FB page so I grabbed it for DC.
