This was a little something I whipped up for a friend’s birthday recently. He has a history with regard to chickens so there is some sense in it. I punched out some black card and threaded it with cotton threads. Design measures approximately 148 × 210mm and the overall piece is 210 x 297mm.

This is just a little test embroidery I completed as I’ve been trying to work out a slightly different way of embroidering these werewolf-esque images. It’s hand embroidered on red linen with cotton threads.
This is a little something I sent to Gem Barton for her Scan.It project which is exploring the use of scanning as an alternative to photography.
I took my porcelain doll and scanned it at 300dpi in black and white. I then printed out a number of copies of this image and drew on them as in the image above before scanning the composite images again at 300dpi but this time in colour.
There’s still time to take part; click here to download the brief and then simply email your Scan.It work to hello[at]gembarton.com with your name, a title and short description before July 15th. Some of these images will be selected for use in an exhibition at Gallery40, Brighton.
