Default One very patient artist

Miguel Endara paints (if that is the right word) a picture of his dad, so 3.2 million dots later...

Very cool...nicely done video...wonder how he calculated the number of dots...'-}}

The guy I used to rent my parking space from when I lived in the city (Washington, DC) drew in a pointillist style...sorry to say, I lost track of him after I moved to the 'burbs...

The answer is no. I wouldn't have the patience even if I had the skill.

I experimented with the technique way, way back in school... I liked it because of the subtle effects you can accomplish, liked it not because of the endless concentration required and lack of a way to do corrections.

(Of course I never ended up doing drawings anyway. )

Great video - thanks for posting!

Look through my eyes on Cultural Surfaces (soon!), My ArtFlakes shop and Flickr.
Occasionally I am also connecting online dots... and sometimes you can follow me on Marjolein's Travel Blog
