Trial of patience, anyone ?
California-based Andrew Myer definitely is the unbeaten king on the throne of patience. By creating his stunning 3-dimensional portraits he starts with a base, plywood panel, then places pages of a phone book on top, draws the first sketch of a face and now it's getting tricky - in the next step Andrew pre-drills 8,000 to 10,000 holes by hand and being now sure they are on their right place he fixes the screws drilling them into the panel. Therefor he does not rely on any computer software to guide him, he figures it out as he goes along and afterwards he paints over each head individually to create the finish product which looks more like a portrait than a sculpture. And in fact for his first screw-portrait it took him six months to complete it. Chapeau, Mr. Myer!
