Jamie Harkins is an artist and musician currently working out of his studio in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand. Harkins’ art would appear like meaningless lines to people on the beach, but viewed from afar, they transform into sailboats, docks, steps, or other artistic images from Harkins’ wild imagination. The technique is known as anamorphosis.
