Warrington, England-based architect-turned-artist David Foster uses a hammer and nails to create beautiful pointillistic works of art. His portraits are particularly impressive. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, Foster’s pieces demonstrate the brain’s amazing ability to interpret an image made of nothing but tiny dots.

Before picking up his hammer, Foster’s process begins with a photograph and a pen:

"My work is based initially on a photograph which I painstakingly reproduce by stippling with an ink pen. The inked drawing is then enlarged to mark out where the nails go and then the nailing begins….. many thousands of nails later I have the finished piece. It is very tactile art and the viewer will find it hard not to touch the work.

My technique has evolved and developed over time, I now use tiny nails which enable the viewer to see and interpret the work more closely and in detail. I currently have over half a million nails in my studio waiting to be ‘nailed’.”

I have to have this in my new studio.

A successful weekend overall.

I got to spend a lot of time with people I care about and who care about me…. And I won a $50 gift card to Mellow Mushroom tonight at the Masquerade Musician Showcase! I think tomorrow will be perfect to finally take Donnie on a hike to the creek.

If you enjoy good music, check out the bands I saw tonight. Avenue of the Giants, Drunker, Corvus and Canis, and Crash Dragon. I missed the first two—The Tempest and The Georgia Flood.
