    wait, that’s really small why did it takes so long? is it remarkable because it took too long???….yeeesss i use stippling to make art as well.

  • Something Or Other

    Wow! That’s a crazy feat, but 370 hours = 22,200 minutes = 1,332,000 seconds… which is just over 5 dots per second. Are we sure it didn’t take longer, or that there aren’t a couple million less dots? That seems like a breakneck pace to make something so intricate! Is there even time to think!?

    • Xavier

      Thanks ! I actually stipple at a speed of 5-8 dots per seconds, it’s certainly more than 7 million but this estimation is accurate enough I guess :)

Filled with colourful and chaotic images that blur the line between cute and creepy, what began as a commission for Japanese magazine Them, has turned into something of an ongoing experiment thanks to London-based publishers Katie Bagley and Ferry Gouw of New World International.
