Living in Oregon, and being of Scandinavian descent, salmon are pretty special to me. I particularly like this piece.

Aaahh~! So amazing. I also love salmon... I am up by the Mississippi and all the rivers. I really haven't seen a whole lot in terms of fantasy salmon art! that is so fun and interesting and also somewhat creepy in a awesome Ludi way.

Just when I think you can't come up with some new awesomeness, you do!  Ludi this is wonderful. You must do more like this.

Also, I love the stitching on photos thing but when I try stitching on photos I end up punching out the paper in the area I'm stitching.  Transferring the photo to fabric is a great idea and solves that problem!  Now I just need to learn how to print on fabric.  Which method do you use?
