Artwork by Tracy Hamer

Like Australian artist Brad Eastman, US artist and drawer Tracy Hamer has the good fortune to be based in Bali, Indonesia, at the moment. I expect an artist who might find themselves in some sort of creative rut would soon find inspiration, given the beauty of the location. See more of her work here.

A Big Picture photo collection featuring the recent Asian Beach Games held in Bali, Indonesia.

About a month ago in Bali, Indonesia, the inaugural 2008 Asian Beach Games came to its conclusion. Intended to promote sports and culture, the games (held every two years) encourage tourism, support local economies and allow host countries like Indonesia to present a more global face to the world. The 2008 games brought 6,000 athletes to compete in 71 events in 19 sports. Sports included well-known games like beach volleyball and triathlon, and some sports better known to asians, like sepak takraw, kabaddi and pencak silat. The next Asian Beach Games are scheduled to be hosted by Oman in the year 2010.
