Have you always been a fan of Seurat, making art out of little dots? I am too, but the thought of making all those little pointillism dots everywhere to make a picture sounds like preparation for a long horrible afterlife to me. So, instead I prefer to have my dots all pre-made for me in the form of little tiles that I can put together in tile mosaic crafts. I had a lot of fun making video character tile crafts out of them, they were great for hanging on the wall in the play room over the Nintendo. One of these days I'd like to do it with some Minecraft characters too.
