Ah, Hindley - there was once an amazing painting I saw of her - someone had casted the hands of kids, and used them to make a stamped mosaic of that picture. It was in the Sensation! Exhibit when they brought it to Brooklyn in...Hrm. Had to be 2000?

I guess its both a distinctive photo, and a good one for translation into other mediums.

And I see looking through the comments that piece of artwork was already posted. Bah! Anyway, I'd love to see more of these - I've had a life long fascination with serial killers. I even have favourites. (Gein. There is something oddly entertaining about a man, who, when his house was searched, had a box filled with vaginas)

That is awesome work!  I get spooked out just having Audrey Hepburn on my wall let along serial killers!  Cheesy

I think you did a great job with this.  The subject matter is interesting...the looks in their eyes are chilling.  It's a fascinating subject, can't wait to see more!

Everyone likes something different and this is different. Good for you. No more teddy bears and angels...

When I think of glamour, I often think of people who are spoiled, who don't understand the value of the things or people who are around them so they cast them off like scrap paper as soon as they no longer entertain them. 

I think this is a good representation of what a serial killer is.

As for the pictures, I just don't get the why you (general, not specific) would want their pictures. It is not the fascination with the psychology of the killer's mind or morbidity itself that I don't get. That I get.

I get the no more unicorns, astrology, teddy bears things. I grew tired of those long ago myself.
I've just never understood taking the time to stitch serial killers.

Wow, these are awesome. Makes me want to reread my Serial Killers encyclopedia. I hope you plan on doing more of them. May I suggest an Ed Gein or an Albert Fish? Smiley

I like them. I do think they're creepy as hell though.  I once worked in an art gallery that had a picture of Ian Brady...it gave me the fear but was luckily (or bizzarely) snapped up quick and it wasn't left lying around the studio after the exhibition ended.

I also have no interest in sewing bunnies and such and I don't think for a second you're endorsing the moors murderers.

These forums are filled with work that is subjective, not all of it's suitable for work and it's certainly not for everyone's taste but I think it's the reason why I come here to show my work rather than join the sewing bee in the church across the street.

There's probably a line somewhere but I personally don't think you've crossed it at all.  Keep up the good work.

Life's a garden.  Dig it.

When this project was posted here in 2005, it probably was one of the most edgy pieces to cross these virtual doors, hence the controversy.
Since that time, we have seen all manner of "taboo" subjects, especially on the needlework board (I think we just like combining the "prim and proper" art of embroidery with shocking subjects for the irony).
I think Craftster is fabulous for welcoming these unusual and controversial pieces.

I have an odd serial killer obsession myself. So I think the portraits are really cool. Good Job!
