Aside from some cross stitch on plastic canvas as a kid, I've never really tried needlework before. But a while back I came across these amazing embroidered portraits and was super inspired to try it out. I like how the artist used the floss like Van Gogh uses paint so I tried for a similar effect. My little chickadee isn't anywhere close to Daniel Kornrumpf's portraits, but I think he's cute anyways. Smiley

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

That is great! He is very cute and your embroidery skills are very impressive for a beginner. The colour variations are very nice.
