Illustration Friday: "stitch"


My submission for Illustration Friday's "stitch" is one of the little closets I made for the owners of Fred Segal Fun. I used wood, foamcore, wood dowels, acrylic paint and resin for the body of the closets. I made little dresses that I stitched by hand, little felt purses and wraps that I embroidered, hats and shoeboxes made from stonehenge paper, hangers made from floral wire and a cat made from clay. I love to sew and would like to make time to stitch up a few more things.

waitaminute. you sew, too? Oh Val! You've got to be one of the busiest people I know... doing all this wonderful artwork and then you throw in.... "I love to sew...".

I think you can do anything you put your mind toward. You're amazing.

Happy New Year, Val! This little assemblage is absolutely precious! I adore the littl kitty perched atop the closet... he's the purrfect touch!

Valerie! This is so much fun. How delightful to peek inside this closet and see the little garments hanging. You created a tiny world that lets the imagination run with the piece. Now you have to create a teeny tiny woman to enjoy all these treasures.

Ellen Byrne said...

sketched out said...

I love this. I could have used this tiny closetful of clothes when I was a kid and there were tiny people living under the apple tree, in our backyard.

No seriously, there were.

Perfect submission for the theme and so adorable!
