I discovered about 150 dots is the minimum number of dots to make a specific recognizable person. You can make something that looks like a head, with fewer dots, but you won't be able to give much information about who it is.
~Chuck Close

150, eh? Does that make you want to test it? I have the feeling that he's right.

Lastly, a quote to make you go "hmmm..." from artist Sigmar Polke:

I love all dots. I am married to many of them. I want all dots to be happy. Dots are my brothers. I am a dot myself.
~Sigmar Polke

This was so much fun to see... I LOVE polka dots! And that elephant... adorable.

Reminded me of a little project I did on shoes!
