Somebody Told Me

Somebody Told Me

Phat Quarter swap piece, theme “Somebody Told Me.” I was unable to get The Killers’ song out of my head, so I just went with it. (I realize that the D&G feather jacket was for Day and Age and the song’s from Hot Fuss.)

Glitter thread on everything!

Glitter Berries

…the ones that fill your mouth with beautiful sparkling glitter when you bite into them? THOSE are the ones that make you act WEIRD. That is, until you spread your shimmering wings and fly away!

Made for the Phat Quarter food swap.

Participating in the Embroidered Digital Commons project with the Mr X Stitch crowd. Our term is “fractal.”

I used X-bar syntax to highlight both the structure and the repetition–the generative, fractal nature–of language.

You mess with the bull, you get the horns. You mess with Moya, you get lasered by these adorable little guys.

Teeny baby foot!

11″x14″ on 14-pt Aida. Begun Thanksgiving 2010, finished March 2011. I spent four months proving to myself that I need to manually restrict the color palette when working in grayscale.
