Ink dot illustrations are impressive and they’re getting bigger and more detailed with time. Xavier Casalta is a master of this method of drawing.
The France-based artist has made career out of creating highly-detailed illustrations of everything from food to calligraphic letters. Casalta’s latest piece, called Autumn, is a throwback to the bygone/upcoming season. Using a technique called stippling, the artist places several ink dots in various patterns to create lines, and textures until an exquisite illustration is formed. This one took 370 hours to create, with roughly seven million dots in all.
