Embroidery is having a bit of a moment in illustration as well as on the catwalk. Whilst I have a major soft spot for floral embroidered hankies and table clothes, it’s bold graphic embroidery that’s inspiring me at the moment. I loved Jillian Tamaki’s hand embroidered cover for Emma, Black Beauty and The Secret Garden.
MaricorMaricar’s embroidered typography is genius. And Jazmine Berakha’s embroidered fashion illustration are beyond stunning. Here is my humble second attempt at embroidery after picking up a multi-pack of embroidery floss at Sainsbury’s. I find it very relaxing and satisfying, so I’m hoping to do much more.
