A man and his stick

Tuesday, August 16, 2011


Wow, I'm completely gobsmacked by people with incredibly creative brilliance. Jim Denevan is a landscape artist that travels across America while creating drawings in the sand with a stick (or his car) that are eventually erased by waves and weather. He mostly sculptures geometric patterns and swirls that sometimes cover miles of the beach and they take about 5 hours to complete.

Fun fact: A few of his drawings were named largest in the world. The 1,000 circle project when completed was wider than the Manhattan and San Francisco Bay Area. (Here is a very interesting video of that).

Isn't that incredible? I have no clue how he does it, but it's pretty genius! What do you think, Sweets? xo

P.S: Thank you so very much for your sweet comments on my previous post! I'm totally *blushing* right now:) You are all the best!

Agreed, these people are amazing and so inspirational. It would be interesting to have several of the people who create these types of things in a room together discussing what makes them tick and what influenced them to create.
