This guy apparently used 1,702 pennies to make a portrait of Lincoln. Sorting the coins took about seven hours, and making the image took just under six. I suppose its not any more time consuming that a painting.

History of myself or history of selfportraits,
by Yves Calmejane
A fortieth self portrait ?
There are many things left to discover about one of the most famous painters in the world.
A young art lover, Jules Petroz, has recently discovered in a flea market a portrait which could be dated from the Parisian period of Van Gogh. If it was a self-portrait, it would be the fortieth. The small painting has character; dark coloured and the gaunt face could correspond to the artist’s look when arrived in Paris, he was sheltered by his brother Theo.
He arrived broke from Anvers and physically diminished. Very little is known from this period, most of what we know being based on the brothers’s reciprocal letters.
Although it is not technically early Parisian period but Vincent Van Gogh changed so often style during this epoch. After quarrelling with girlfriend Agostina Segatori, (the ‘Tambourine’ holder, a cabaret in Montmartre where Vincent had hanged most of his latest works), he came back to collect his works; alas! The cabaret had shut down, the lady gone and the paintings sold for a few francs to a junk dealer…
Did some of these paintings survive?
The painting is here reproduced so the reader can make himself an opinion.
And for art sake.

This is second part of a long night of self-examination, an introspective of my own soul as a person, my thoughts, my emotions, my many flaws unmasked. This is my version of what a modern day Painter's Self-Portrait should look like. These days we have many more tools to communicate and express our art and ourselves so last night I thought about painting on a living canvas. - I may only share one video with Metacafe but I have 4 other videos until the face painting was done.
This was a homework, the idea was make a portrait of my mother, the result was a experimental stuff with a lot of symbols and metaphoric things
