Star Sailor Sampler

Star Sailor Sampler by Spike Dennis & Layla Holzer

Star Sailor Sampler

This star sailor sampler is a a little test piece that I worked on with fairy tale illustrator Layla Holzer with a view to undertaking some collaborative work. The piece is inspired by a fairy tale that Layla wrote.

Layla has painted the scene out in gouache on linen. I’ve then embellished the painting with embroidered elements such as the moon and stars as well as the text.

Although it needs a little refinement I think we’re both happy with the outcome of this test piece.
