…is artist Miguel Endara’s portrait of his Dad’s face. Composed of approximately 3.2 million black ink dots, using a single Sakura Pigma Micron pen (nib size 005, 0.20 mm). The total number of dots was determined by muliplying the average stippling speed of this piece, 4.25 dots per second, by the amount of time logged in, 210 hours.
Not only was the ‘Making of Video’ nominated on Vimeo, but Miguel himself blogs about the process on his personal Tumblr. I really like the post where he shows you how he rigged the camera up in order to capture the moment.
