stippleart Dude Draws His Dad    In 210 Hours and 3.2 Million Dots

You may have already seen this video — it’s gone viral in the last few days. Miguel Endara drew a portrait of his dad entirely by stippling dots with a Micron pen. When I was into drawing, stippling was my shading method of choice, but this is nuts. And not only did he peck down 3.2 million dots, he counted ‘em, too! Yikes. [Thanks to our awesome Sales Manager Brigitte Kunde for sharing this!]
