Unlike me, Andrew Myers works well with drills and screws. A session with a DeWalt doesn’t leave him cursing, screaming and searching for the right sized drill bit only to discover that the thing is out of juice. The Laguna Beach, California-based artist goes through a multi-step process to create incredible works of art. He starts with a base, plywood panel, and then places pages of a phone book on top. He then draws out a face and pre-drills 8,000 to 10,000 holes, by hand. As he drills in the screws, Myers doesn’t rely on any computer software to guide him, he figures it out as he goes along. Wow, I’m guessing he doesn’t fail at hanging pictures either.
