210 Hours and 3.2 Million Ink Dots: A Man Draws his Hero


What would you give to your dad, your mom, or a person you simply adore? What is the best gift to say: “Thank you, you are my hero!”? How about a picture? But this time, I’m not talking about a picture you take with your camera, but a drawing you make with your own hands… dot by dot.

If you look at the picture above, you might think it’s a simple drawing, but if you look a bit closer and watch the making of video then you will be very surprised. Miguel Endara has drawn this amazing portrait for his Dad, his hero. He needed 210 hours because it doesn’t consist of lines but of dots – millions of ink dots. 3.2 million ink dots to be precise, and with only one pen!

Have a look yourself:

Have you ever created something special for a beloved person? Ever did a drawing for your hero or maybe a collage of photos? Share your ideas and stories in the comments. I would love to hear them.
