Freestyle machine embroidered drawing

By spotogspindel | December 13, 2015

(Oh no, now I see a spelling mistake!)

This is the first in my brand new series of How-To books. Actually it´s a free fantasy type of log-book for my drawing-exam. I chose to draw with a sewing thread via a sewing machine. So of course the whole book had to be textile. I wanted to explore thee optical illusion of how one color changes when you change the color of the background. In this case, how a grey picture of a person seems to change depending on whether the background is black or white. It seems almost like a positive or a negative in a photographic film. I also added a couple of other tests and thoughts.

Since I wanted to sew everything, there is not much actual information here. I´ll put that on my account for artistic freedom! 😉
