This Portrait Is Actually Hand Drawn with 2.1 Million Dots

This is a portrait of Benjaman Kyle. He's a man who doesn't know anything about himself. Literally. He was unconscious when he was discovered behind a fast food restaurant in Georgia and had no belongings, severe sunburns, was nearly blind and had no idea who he was. Benjaman Kyle, which isn't even his real name, suffers from dissociative amnesia which means he forgot his entire former life. He doesn't really exist, even though he's alive in real life.

There's a documentary about Benjaman Kyle and how he spent the past 8 years without being allowed to have another social security number (which limits his banking and credit options). Called Finding Benjaman, the hope was to spread the word of Benjaman Kyle so that someone would recognize him and tell him who he was. Artist Miguel Endara saw the documentary and wanted to help Benjaman by creating this amazing dot portrait of him. It took over 138 hours to make and about 2.1 million dots total. Let's hope Benjaman can find out who he is soon. [This Is Colossal]
