This is a piece I stitched for a friend.. The artwork is by Jose Pulido, who is an awesome artist that day of the deads everything.. from Elvis to Johnny Cash to George Washington. He also did a Star Wars series which are so awesome! I had a hard time deciding which one to stitch but the Chewbacca was screaming, stitch me! Maybe it is all those lines? Either way A LOT of fun.. Let me know what you think Smiley

Finished piece


Not gonna lie, I got excited when I saw the pattern

Awesome work! I love the details in his face...not to mention all that fur! Glad to see someone is stitching up Pulido's amazing designs. It looks great in embroidery form.

I use solvy! I just cut some off, tape it around the design and trace.. then when I hope it I just put the drawn transfer one top, after stitching I was it with hand soap and let it try.. ta-da!

Oh my goodness! Awesomeness! I so want to do one of his now! I really like the lady liberty and the Obi/Darth battle. Awesome Chewy! Sublime stitching should have him be one of her artist series! These are so perfect for embroidery!

yeah pretty sure the artist would have to agree to the release of their images. from what I have been told he doesn't want anyone making a profit off of his work. so I doubt that will happen. I made this piece as a gift for a friend, and I am sure he will love it. thank you Cheesy

this is really well done...and honestly I'm not really a star wars fan...but i LOVE chewy lol, if that makes sense. Art is actually a weird thing...if i take and art image, and redo it in a different medium as long as my name is on it i can sell it as my own...or with telling people who the original was done by. for art class we had to go to the net and find a pic we liked change it to into a cross hatch drawing and then do all the other steps to make it into a print. because we changed whatever art we chose into a different style it now becomes ours, its not the same as a direct copy. I'm not sure about tracing their exact image though...but i was taught to believe that was cheating unless its your own image but that's just how art teachers are. maybe if you looked at the image and drew it free hand it'd turn out even better anyway. my friends in that class had to have me draw theirs out because they couldn't, sometimes its hard to get the proportions correct. Though i can understand not doing it for other reasons Smiley you could always pick your favourite movie or images and change them to that style. theres no harm letting them influence you like that.

*sorry to keep rambling like this i just looked up the art work and i was just wondering, do you know how it was done? is it just an ink drawing? its in a series like a print would be so maybe it was done the old fashioned way but i dont see any indent around the paper that would let me know it was done with the press like prints are.

my technique to embroidery is quite common, I think most people take a image and trace it or copy it before they stitch it. I know this artist has told a fellow crafter to NOT sell any reproductions of his art. and I believe he just draws the images but I could be wrong.

this is a hotly debated issue
but I think in the case where someone's making money off someone else's work, even if it is modified, it is copyright theft if the image is clearly copied from the original. And the individual who created the original work has the right to take that case to court if they think they have a case - then it is in the hands of the jury to decide if copyright has been breached.

We all get inspiration from places, and thats fine, Katie's not selling this so there's nothing to sue her over. No harm no foul. Tracing is not cheating in embroidery.

But you're right, intellectual property rights are complicated in the art/design world. It is a funny thing. If you drew your own Jose What-cha-call-him inspied art and then embroidered it, you could sell that no probelm.

Aside from all this, this work is awesome, the colouring is excellent and the stitching is so tidy! congrats Katie, thanks for switching me on to this guy!

It's screenprinting done with Print Gocco, which Jose Pulido mentions on his Etsy store. I wasn't sure what that meant, so I looked it up and found this site: http://www.diylife.com/2007/12/14/diy-definitions-print-gocco/ . So it is a print, but done in a newfangled way. Wink

yeah it is tricky. I have only thought of selling a reproduction of an artists work once, unfortunately that artist never got back to me. this piece, however, was for my friend who wanted something embroidered that was star wars themed. he is a tattoo artist so i thought how cool would it be to do something by Jose cause his day of the dead art would be loved by a tattoo artist. i am however hoping i get some cool artwork in return Wink

I sew clothes too and it gets EVEN MORE vague when you're talking sewing patterns in theory every 'shape' is copyrighted... I mean come on... you can't copyright the pattern for a T-shirt or a circle skirt! but there *are* sewing patterns out there for those things...  you can't go around sewing up 100's of copies of a sewing pattern and selling them online, thats illegal, you can sell ONE of the garment if you buy ONE of the pattern, thats fine.

but yea, nobody's going to complain about such a flattering rendition of a great artwork.

and I hope you do get something awesome in return, you deserve it :-)
