Sunday inspiration

Happy Sunday!

Today's video inspiration features a portrait created entirely from push pins—15,000 of them, to be exact! It took several weeks for the artists to create the portrait, and the result is amazing!

In the second video, the artists talk about their process and what happened behind the scenes, which is also pretty fascinating. Enjoy!

  1. Geez, it makes my complaining about painting the laundry room seem so whiny by comparison.

  2. Very cool! In Rotorua, New Zealand there is a Jelly Belly store at the top of the tram...there are pictures made from Jelly Belly Jelly Beans- Starry Starry Night, Mona Lisa and a few others- amazing!
    Happy New Year!

    2. Gotcha! I agree. I think if I ever attempted a project like that, it would have to be on a much smaller scale. :)

  8. It's amazing how much our eyes and minds can fill in what we can't actually see or isn't even there. It's kind of like those sentences that are typed all crazy but you can read them because your mind just fills in what isn't really there with what is familiar. In this case we just fill in a human face. Awesome!! :)
