Christian Faur - Crayon Art

An artist based in Granville, Ohio, Christian Faur creates pictures from thousands of crayons as 'wax pixels' by standing the crayons on ends.

"I think that painting is very much like solving a complicated mathematical problem, where each step logically and necessarily follows from the previous step, finally arriving at a solution. Ideally, an elegant one."

The patience it must take to finish one of these... *sigh*

(BTW, about your comment on my last post -- thanks, but I'm just a weekend cook, so that's why you only see me posting recipes on a Sunday!)
