Australian artist Jarryn Dower crafts meticulous works that combine two of his favorite things – drawing and surfing. He uses old, retired surfboards as his canvas and covers them with gorgeous art inspired by the sea. These images are produced with the stipple technique, which looks incredible but is very time consuming. Dower uses over 200,000 tiny dots in any given piece, and sometimes projects will take him up to 30 hours to finish.
We see he's drawn a great white shark (with a bite taken out of the board), crashing waves, a view of a boardwalk, and other beach scenes. Dower sometimes uses color, but he mostly focuses on monochromatic works that give great depth and contrast. The unique pieces showcase the beauty and magic of the shore, and they are made even more special because the surfboard intimately ties into their subject matter.
For now, these works are made just for fun because Dower is still a full time student. He posted his work on Reddit, however, and has gotten a great response from people interested in purchasing his delicate creations.
