Christian Faur's Crayon Pixel-Art

It's amazing what some people can creatively do with everyday objects, and Christian Faur has recently dropped my jaw ... He makes pixel-art out of crayons, No not drawing with them, but using them stacked in a tray to make a picture.

My earliest memories of making art involve the use of wax crayons. I can still remember the pleasure of opening a new box of crayons: the distinct smell of the wax, the beautifully colored tips, everything still perfect and unused. Using the first crayon from a new box always gave me a slight pain. Through a novel technique that I have developed, I again find myself working with the familiar form of the crayon.

i've seen his stuff in person at the sofa (sculptural objects functional art) convention in chicago. they really are beautiful. however, his pieces with the colored crayons used almost like "polka-dots" throughout the picture annoy me. when used as lines, not so much.

I can't tell if he's good or not. Depends on whether he is 'cheating' or not. His comments don't say.

It looks like he's scanned a photo, and a computer has told him exactly where to put which shade of crayola.

However, if he's doing this with his own eye and a bit of patience, then that would be more impressive to me.

Anyway, I like the one with the bees.
