Madagascar

I took the plunge and listed some artwork on Etsy. I decided at least if I start listing stuff then I can get more confidence in my work. Someone hearted it already which was nice. I love using the sewing machine as a drawing tool. Particularly colours like red thread on white paper. Something which I find happens a lot in my artwork (especially the ones with stitching) is the back is often more interesting than the actual artwork. It got to the stage at University where I would just paint on the back of my canvas but it never ended up working in reverse and never looked any better.

Yeah, this looks great. I love the way the red thread adds movement and pulls your eye around the image. Very nice. :)
