Artist Miguel Endara has the artistic precision and accuracy of Georges Seurat, and a beautifully shot video to back it up. In this short film, Endara creates a freehand drawing of his hero, his father, using 3.2 million ink dots in an art form called “stippling” using a single Sakura Pigma Micron Pen.

He focused intently during the 210 hours it took him to finish this piece, completed over the course of a year. Endara is so passionate about his art, he reminds us of talented Dallas artists found at Art Conspiracy, Dallas Observer’s culture jam ‘Artopia’, and the work of Cuban artist Rolando Diaz. View Endara’s story, as well as these stories of other artistic Dallasites. We just have one question for Endara – how did he not get ink on his hands?
