This Dog Is Made Entirely of Sprinkles

It began as a fine art project on Pointillism and Seurat, but university student Joel Brochu decided to run with the idea, recreating a photo of a Beagle in a bathtub using just six colors of hand placed sprinkles.

Working from a template created by a piece of software that analyzed the original image, Joel spent eight months placing every single sprinkle onto a four by one and a half foot board covered with double sided tape and a thin layer of glue. Jewelry tweezers made the process of adhering the 221,184 dots of candy a bit easier, but only just slightly I imagine.

Now that it's complete the sweet mosaic is sealed with a clear acrylic resin to preserve the sprinkles, the image, and the memory of what probably drove Joel to complete madness. Here's to hoping he at least got an A on the project. [Flickr via Laughing Squid via PetaPixel]

So let me see if I have this straight.

This guy scanned a picture of a painting someone else did using a piece of software that he didnt write which separated the picture into essentially pixels labeled with one of 6 colors.

This guy then printed out the color by number map.

This guy then put 221,184 sprinkles on those prelabeled "pixels".

This isnt art. My 10 year old nephew with a full month's supply of Ridilin could do the same thing.
