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. We can also offer drone photography and video editing on request.
We now offer sand animation. These are created on light boxes and animated using stop motion and film.
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.
We work with many different charities and community groups to create sand drawings aimed at delivering important messages and sparking conversation.
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, public engagement 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
To mark the 100thyear anniversary of Armistice Day we worked with Danny Boyle and 14-18 NOW to produce ‘Pages of the Sea.’ To be part of such an event of national scale and importance was a colossal and sobering undertaking. We designed the faces, trained the teams and produced the logistics and materials for 30 locations! Our team then drew a 60m portrait of Wilfred Owen in Folkstone and watched with thousands of people as the tide washed it away on the 11thhour of the 11thday. Read more
