British sculptor Antony Gormley originally proposed his Another Place project back in 1995 for installation on the Kugelbake in Germany. The series, featuring 100 cast iron figures has since made appearances on beaches throughout Europe (Germany, Norway, and Belgium).

We have posted the work of the very talented Bristol-based Illustrator and Painter China Mike before. These days he is feeling less pressure to create realistically defined images, instead wanting there to be a playfulness in his work and to not get bogged down with mechanical routines.

There is nothing quite as much fun as playing on the beach, especially if sand castles are involved. We can attest to the fact that this enjoyment does not dissipate as we grow up and become "adults." It seems as though some "adults" have taken over the beaches of Weston in North Somerset England recently for the Sand Sculpture Festival. This year's theme was Hollywood and it resulted in some Hitchcock, Harry Potter, E.T., and Pirates of the Caribbean magic!
