I love all of the doodle-style artwork on the cover of the Mighty Boosh dvds and in their book so had a go at translating some of it into embroidery. I did think about colouring it in and showing Ol' Greg and Tony Harrison in their multi-colour glory but I'm not sure if I've got the patience at the moment.

Most of it is straight-forward back stitch with a little chain stitch and the occasional (untidy) french knot. I'm happy-ish with most of it but the text is a little bit too wonky at the top. My favourite bit to do was obviously Vince's awesome hair Wink
