Recarved professional sand sculpture

  In a world were almost every sand sculptor can call them self a Master Sculptor, there is at least one artist who has the common sence to shun the term. Sean Fitzpatrick, owner and founder of Fitzysnowman.com has sculpted sand for over 20 years and admittedly is still learning new things about the medium. When asked about the commonly used term, “Master Sculptor” this is what he had to say. “I believe the term was originally used to describe the artists of the renaissance period. These artists were most likely still learning as well, but having been commissioned by the Vatican, it gave them a status that otherRead More →

3d chalk art

3D chalk art has a long history and is known by many names. Some of those include 3D street painting, chalk painting, and my favorite anamorphic art. This form of art and painting dates back to before the 16th century. The process begins by determining the viewing hight and distance from the painting. Once the proper figures are calculated  and reference lines are established, the drawing can then be transferred to the grid and the painting or chalkinging can begin. When viewed from any other angle or height than the desired view point the painting looks distorted. When viewed at the proper view point, an illusion of depth and 3 dimensions is achieved.        Read More →

I have never shared this story with anyone outside of my family circle. I thought today would be a fitting day to do just that. This story actually starts in 2000 a full year prior to the attacks of September 11, 2001. I was working as an automotive technician at a local Ford Dealer in the Boston area. I had recently discovered the art of sand and snow sculpting and was contemplating if I would ever be able to transition from my job as a full-time mechanic to full-time artist. The idea of supporting a family of five by selling snow sculptures did not impress many peopleRead More →

protect your intellectual property

Recently, by way of a few online forums, I became aware of an issue that I thought was in need of some serious attention. As a professional sand sculptor I have become used to having photographers of every skill level taking photos of my work. Until recently, I never gave it much thought about where those photos would end up or even for what purpose they may be used. Many of you reading this have undoubtedly at one time or another received an email containing photos of several of the coolest sand sculptures ever created. The lingering question that remains is, who exactly holds the intellectualRead More →
