The Making of a Work of Art

This video, titled Hero, details artist Miguel Endara's drawing of his father, a drawing consisting of more than 3 million dots (the number was based on an average of dots per second multiplied by the 210 hours it took him to complete the drawing). The process is fascinating, but the addition of the number of dots as the image progressed made for a unique extra.

I can't imagine how one would figure out how to do it, let alone actually do it by holding your hand just so for that many hours.

It does sound tiring, to say the least.
