The Kid Should See This

Stipple drawing by Miguel Endara

Starting with a goofy portrait of his father’s photocopied face artist Miquel Endara embarked on an ambitious stipple drawing, using 3.2 million dots from assorted Micron pens to recreate the image on paper. Watch the wonderfully shot video above condensing 210 hours of drawing to see how he did it and also check out his website where he has a zoomable high-res version of the image.

I had to explain what a xerox machine is and why the dad’s face is so smushed, but after I did that, this video was kid-approved. (Also, love the type-work in this.)
