I'm a graduate student in Fibers at Savannah College of Art and Design. This blog is where I am documenting my life through drawing and embroidery.
Originally, I made one elaborate piece each week. In full color, stretched on a canvas frame, with different embellishment techniques.
To keep up with the demands of grad school, I am now doing one quick gesture drawing a day and highlighting part of each sketch with a line of stitch.

1-17 through 1-19
"New Box of Prismacolors" 1-17
"Dude Smoking Outside of the Bean" 1-18
"Maggie doing yoga in the kitchen" 1-19
The box of markers isn't a great page. I was quite excited about the markers but linear shapes don't excite me. Also, I think I'm done trying metallic thread. I love the second two pages. Just isolating one interesting line is my favorite technique. And I think these are successful because the lines also highlight the action in the image. I think these two are actually my favorite in the book so far. Including the 12 days I haven't posted yet.
