Here's another image conversion of mine. This is the retro version of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation logo. The CBC makes government-funded TV and radio, which I listen to all day long.



Some progress pics:





I'm thrilled with how this turned out. I'm getting much faster and cleaner with my stitching, which is super satisfying.

Love it!  As soon as I saw it on the front page I knew it was the CBC logo.

It's making a comeback--I see it on hats and t-shirts all the time. Granted, mostly at the kinds of places where you'd find a bunch of CBC fans: farmer's markets, music festivals, university campus...

man! I used to think he really WAS a giant - the miniature furniture totally fooled me. Rusty was creepy though. And the CBC logo caught me right away! - love the retro!
