Remember the Edward Gorey Stitchalong? The Illustration Stitchalong group on twitter followed it up with an excellent Yim Burton Tribute, stitching Burton’s sketches and animated characters and turning them into textile art. Check out some of the highlights below ( click on the image to visit the group’s page for full sized images and more!)
I love these pieces created by Follow Bunny, Honeybee’s Felt, Sewphie T, Stitchin Thyme , Fiber Artsy , House of Ala Mode , Paisley Peddler and Ali M , but that’s only a few check out the rest here Illustration Stitchalong group.
During this next quarter (runs until the end of September) we are inviting YOU to chose one of their favourite illustrations by any artist and recreate it in stitches. Everyone’s welcome, just sign up to the group and start sharing your work in progress pics. Whose illustrations will you stitch?
p.s I really dropped the ball this time as my summer’s been too busy to create some Tim Burton art, but I’m definitely gonna create something for the ‘free choice’ stitchalong. I’m off to search for reference images now!
