Like a lot of sewing techniques, I can’t seem to commit blanket stitch to long term memory, and have to look it up every time I do it. Someday, it will stick.
Have been reading about sashiko embroidery and patching denim online, and this was my first attempt at either, although this isn’t technically sashiko. I didn’t use the technique, needle or thread, which I didn’t have at the time.
Note: don’t patch denim with lightweight cotton.
Avery labels. This was a collage I made for a zine assembled by my colleagues at Facebook, intended to showcase the side art skills of our writing team. I was attempting to capture the mildly frantic pace of life involved at working there, which involves a lot of fast walking to back to back meetings, and long freeway commutes in private shuttles.
Sharpie. I drew this freehand and always enjoy the mildly warped perspective this produces. It’s interesting to think about how a drawing like this is a visual impression communicated to your hand one line at a time. How that can result in a recognizable drawing is amazing, for someone who doesn’t take drawing ability for granted.
