Miguel Endara Draws a Portrait of His Father Using 3.2 Million Dots stippling portraits pointillism drawing

Wow. 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 have a terrible feeling my dad is going to ask me for a portrait using 3.3 million dots. (via stellar)

I’m loving these explosively colorful graphite and watercolor pieces by Portland-based artist Zach Johnsen from his series entitled Acid Over Easy.

After graduating from the Tasmanian School of Art in 2002, Sean Edward Whelan left Australia to discover the mysteries of Japan, settling in Joetsu, Niigata where he began working as an English teacher and now works as an illustrator and artist. His lovely pencil drawings depicting a rich texture of traditional Japanese buildings, bridges and lanterns, create singular super structures in the shape of people. I can’t tell you how much I love these. Whelan had his first solo show earlier this year at No Vacancy Gallery in Melbourne, and you can see much more of his work here and here.

If you like these illustrations, you might also like the works of Vasco Mourao and Sagaki Keita. All images courtesy the artist.

Update: There’s now a nice interview with Whelan over on Charles and Ford.

Róbert Oláh is a 20-year-old student at Moholy-Nagy University in Budapest who is currently exploring graphic, web and sound design. His Faces series caught my eye, as they were just unlike anything I’ve seen before, and I can only hope he continues to explore this style. Intriguing work.

Poly is a new geometric drawing app for the iPad by Seoul-based interaction designer Jean-Christophe Naour of Innoiz. The program lets you import imagery and trace it geometrically while it averages color based on data within each triangular field. Can’t wait to try it out, it looks gorgeous.

Keep Drawing

A new rotoscopic animation by Seoul-based Studio Shelter (previously) in which every single frame is a different character in a different style, frequently switching mediums between pencils, pens, markers, and even paint. What a perfect and wonderful way to capture the frustrations and rewards of drawing through the medium itself. I watched the whole clip twice and was amazed, but it wasn’t until the third time when I started hitting pause repeatedly that I realized how many hundreds of hidden treasures flash before your eyes. I definitely recommend spending some time with it. Directed by Ha Juan.

Sagaki Keita (previously) has updated his website with no less than a dozen new works completed this year alone. Keita continues his method of using manically scribbled doodles to create mind-melting illustrations of classic Roman statues. That he could create a single one of these in a year would impress me, but twelve seems simply inhuman. The earlier post of Keita’s work was one of the most popular in this blog’s history, and I’m so glad to be able to share his work with you again.
