Perspective Sculptures by James Hopkins

Abstract from one perspective, recognizable as animation icons from another. Check out these cartoon-based perspective sculptures by UK artist James Hopkins. Most of his subjects are recognizable even in their distorted form – either way, they are a lot of fun.

    Now this is cool and clever. Clever. That’s a damned important word.

    The bonus is that the art has nothing to do with odd-haired young pop singing dudes. So it doesn’t try to be clever by a half or more than it really is.
    But what it is….!

    Conceptually, this exhibit is even more impressive than that 3D sidewalk chalk art because this is two things in one.

    Just cool.

    Seeing this reminds me of the old “Aardman Animations” logo from the 90′s!

    So how much in royalties do the trademark owners of those character designs get?

      It probably depends upon the way you look at it.

    Anamorphic perspective is a very cool technique. It is used often in chalk drawings on the street and popularized by artists like Kurt Wenner.
