My life has been kinda turned upside down for the past year or so. I've been working like crazy in the past few months to try to get back into school and work out a way to try to incorporate fiber arts and printmaking as a major which will be a big change from the English major I was working on prior to this move.

So, sort of in an attempt to prove my dedication to my new found love of fiber arts to my printmaking teacher, I've been working on getting some of my embroidery pieces in a local art show that a friend of mine is running. The show itself will be held in a local tattoo shop and the theme is robots. Well somewhere along the line this became vintage 20s and 30s nudes as cyborgs. Why, you ask? Well, because the only thing that could possibly make robot parts better are lady parts. True story.

Anyway, they're not finished but I just couldn't wait any longer to post.




Here is girl #1. This is on some crazy textured polyester that I found in a giant box of fabric scraps that I found at a garage sale for $7. I love the pattern on it. Someone even asked me if it was a paper towel. And you can damn sure bet the first thought in my head was "No, but I'm going to try that now. . ."








The hair and the cables are probably my favorite.


And here is girl #2. I like this one much more than the first. I feel like my technique improved a lot. Same crazy polyester.




The necklace is french knots and the wires are single and double strand couching. I really wanted it to look like they were spilling out of her.


I was very proud of the detail on the cigarette butt too, but I don't think this picture does it justice. Now that I'm working though, I'm planning on getting a camera soon so hopefully I will have better pictures within the next month or so.

Remember the time he ate my goldfish and you lied to me and said I never had a goldfish? Then why'd I have the bowl Bart?

Why.

Did I Have.

The Bowl??

Ohhhhhhh man! They're absolutely terrific!! I'm especially fond of the second one, smoking/dark hair/blue eyes = excellent!
I find the second chick also kinda resembles Rizzo from Grease.     

So, so spiffy.

I like them a lot! There's something very Blade Runner about them. Awesome work. Smiley

(Btw, love the comment on your blog about how you had found your new nipple color, that's great...)

These are some kind of awesome.


Though I'd have liked to have seen the second girl with half her face gone a la Terminator. That would be spectacular: a come hither look on one side and a cold-blooded machine on the other.
