The last Animal Crossing game, New Leaf (reviewed over here), put you in charge of running the whole town, and the game was a remarkable success, selling well over 7 million copies. The newest Animal Crossing game takes a vastly different strategy. Instead of putting you in charge of running the town, you’re now in charge of…interior design. I grab my wallpaper paste, decorator’s handbook, and keen eye for making sure the drapes match to bring you this review.
What looks like a low quality jpeg image contains a surprisingly high amount of nonpareils. 221,184 sprinkles to be exact.
Art student and Flickr user Joel Brochu glued hundreds and thousands of tiny candy sprinkles to a 4-inch by 1.5-inch board to create an image of a beagle getting a bath. He used jewellery tweezers to place the sprinkles of six different colours, and double-sided tape to ensure they stuck in place. Eight months later, and Brochu had a sweet recreation of a photo by Shingo Uchiyama.
Have a look at Brochu’s version of “be patient” beagle after the jump.
