Dog Portrait made with 221,184 Sugar Sprinkles

Beagle by Joel Brochu (1)

Using only six colors of nonpareils, Joel Brochu has meticulously glued each sprinkle to remake Shingo Uchiyama’s photo of a beagle. “At a distance of 16 feet, the sprinkles blur, tricking the human eye into believing that it is looking at a large photograph. Only when you closely examine the work, do you realize that it has been created entirely with tiny spheres of candy,” [1] states Brochu.
