This was my first but definitely not my last- it's just too much fun once it starts working;). So, thanks for stopping by, be kind and stay humble- mistakes are how we learn! I hope this information helps you make some bad-ass quality inspiration out on the street where it belongs.
ps- anamorphic art is used all around, for example try looking at words written for traffic on the road from the side whilst standing still- yay anamorphic way-finding devices:)
Step 1: Scope out the location.
Step 2: Pick your vantage point. Take a picture, it lasts longer.
Now take a picture from this SPECIFIC spot. Mark it with a big 'X' (I used painter's tape).
What you SHOULD do that I didn't (but will try in the future) is take this shot using a tripod and a camera w/ a nice viewfinder (Julian Beever does this) and have that tripod at the same height and location the entire time you draw. This way you have a concrete reference point, as our fun human eyes and necks tend to waver.
