  • Jennifer

    These are really cool!

  • Kim

    Oh wow, I like these! I love looking at people’s sketchbooks.

  • Stephan

    Wow, number 4 is awesome!

  • Corina

    LOVE these. So talented. The colours, layers and textures are great. That second one looks like John Waters

  • M

    in the larger portraits, the use of variously colored inks adds more dimension and an other-worldly quality to Hendon’s already grotesquely whimsical illustrations. I’d love to see the rest of this sketchy!

  • Justin

    Really nice. Awesome talent. I like the dude with the hat in the first one. All look pretty awesome though. 🙂

  • Gina
  • So good, first one is my favorite

  • very niiice!!!

  • katie

    fantastic…haunting.

  • Charlie

    Hey, i like your work…my friend jamie just sent me a link. I feel we have similar styles/tastes in production methods. If you are on normal facebook (i don’t understand what this one is…never seen it before) we should be friends (haha sounds rather lame). If you are down to do small art shows for a scene that appreciates good work, let me know. Always room for one more, as they say.

    • I would be very interested in doing a show together. Email me anytime. Where can I see your work?

  • Ron

    Fabulous sketches. Maria in the red checked blouse would be an excellent addition. Will Emily love it?

Experimental Artist Petros Vrellis Creates Detailed Portraits With A Single Thread

 

Born in Greece, with a background in Electrical Engineering as well as Art Science, artist Petros Vrellis has a passion for creating interactive installations that blend art and technology. His latest project is a mesmerizing re-imagining of traditional handicraft.

Using a 28″ aluminum-rimmed loom, Petros runs a single thread from one anchor peg to another to create just the right density and darkening at precise intersections. The end result is a detailed image that emerges from 3000 – 4000 continuous loops (or 1-2 kilometers of thread)!

While Petros is following a set pattern developed from a computer-generated algorithm, as you can see in the time-lapsed video above, the step-by-step process is all done by hand. We had the chance to speak with Petros about his experimental process and why hand-made work still has a place in the digital age. Check out the full interview below!
