Sand drawings are amazing to do and so versatile, from animation and 3D anamorphic illusions, to images that span an entire kilometre. We have created sand drawings that have involved hundreds of volunteers and others that were so powerful, they had the ability to make the global media.
3D Anamorphic Sand Drawings
3D anamorphic sand drawings allow those people that don't have access to a fancy helicopter to enjoy our images. We are now leaders in anamorphic beach art, and continue to develop our techniques and apply them to other forms of land art.
Animated Sand Drawing
When we learned how to rub out and re-draw a sand drawing we realised we could animate on a massive scale. What followed was a collaboration with Aardman, the makers of Wallace and Gromit, to make the world's largest stop motion animation film, GULP. We would definitely like to do more!
Giant Sand Drawings
For those with a helicopter this is for you! These images are so big that you will require a chopper to fly as high as it can to get the picture. We have had the privilege of making drawings up to a kilometre long and, let me tell you, such operations are not for the faint-hearted.
Abstract Beach Painting and Free Drawing
Sometimes it is nice to draw without a plan. By responding to the environment around you, the sand, the cliffs and the waves become your inspiration, this is the very essence of free drawing and abstract beach painting.
PR and Advertising Sand Art
We work with many different companies and brands for very different events. We can create all sorts of media friendly art pieces with our experience of simply trying something new. Our drawings don't just need to be on sand either.
Sand Drawing Workshops and Corporate Team Building
Sand drawings are fantastic for workshops and corporate team building events, as it is coastal art that really requires team collaboration and everyone at the end can be proud of the outcome.

Pages Of The Sea
Filmmaker Danny Boyle today announced details for The Pages of the Sea, commissioned by 14-18 NOW to mark the centenary of Armistice Day. On 11 November 2018, the public is invited to gather on beaches across the UK for an informal, nationwide gesture of remembrance for the men and women who left their home shores during the First World War.
Millions of people served in the First World War and many left from beaches around the UK. On Sunday 11 November, the public is invited to assemble at one of 30 beaches at low-tide to take part in a series of community-led events. Sand artists from Sand In Your Eye have designed 30 large scale portraits of casualties from the first World War which will be drawn into the sand at each location and washed away as the tide comes in. In addition, the public is invited to assemble at low-tide to watch the drawing, as well as creating their own silhouettes of people in the sand, remembering the millions of lives lost or changed forever by the conflict.
Here are a couple of films about some of the sand drawings we have done. There are many more in our gallery, including the world's largest stop motion animation.
