Mike Winkelmann Has Created a New Artwork Every Day for 3,416 Consecutive Days (Nearly 10 Years)

beeple-mikewinkelmann17

Artist Mike Winkelmann, perhaps better known as Beeple, has been making a piece of art every day (from start to finish) for the past 3,416 days! That’s nearly ten years of consecutive days spent being creative! His motion work has garnered him a slew of Vimeo Staff picks, and artists like Flying Lotus, Skrillex, Amon Tobin, and many others have used his live visuals in their shows. I’ve seen so much of his work floating around the net but had no idea it was all being created by one guy.

Have a look below at a bunch more of his “Everydays” as he calls them, and then do yourself a favour and check out his videos on Vimeo.
