- Why you are not trying to make 3.2 million ink dots in a A4 paper and then post a comment?!

Let's say he does 10 dots a second, 600 a minute, 36000 an hour, 10 hours each day, so 360000 a day, this would be 9-10 days of making dots, without taking pauses.

10 dots/s? It's more like 2 or 3 at maximum.

I wonder how much he sells it for, if he takes 10euro/h and nothing ells he only get 2100euro :P I'd buy it ^^

That is no where near A4 paper size... A4 is much smaller 210mm by 297mm.

in the very end of the video it shows 210 hours,
so that makes by my count about 4,2 dots per second,
which I think is possible...now dot your dads :P

You're absolutely right!
the paper is bigger - but the dotting is A4 size.

and to the artist - funny "dad's face on a copy machine" dotting with endless patience. very well done! love it!

Pointilism at it's most tedious. Hope he made a pretty penny out of it.

It calculates to 4.2 dots per second. I tried it, and it was possible.
