This is an artwork I did yesterday that I put up on the Illustration Friday website. I only just joined and this weeks topic was stitch, which I thought was a good one to start with as most of my work has stitching in it. When I started the artwork I got a little way in and decided I didn't like it. I left it for a few hours thinking I would never go back to it, but decided I would give it another go.
I went over it with a brush and black ink and decided I liked it again. I added the old book collage at the end, and the part I really like is the zigzag stitch to join up the two parts of the collar as you can see a tiny bit of shadow from the thread on the paper. It is different from the artworks I have been doing, but probably closer to what my actual art from art school is like. A little darker I think.
