Your colorwork is impressive, but your skill really shines in greyscale.

Also, as an embroiderer, I know he would be tickled to see himself - in character - as the topic of one of your pieces. So.much.love.

 I saw the thumbnail and immediately said this has to be Ludi's! LOL! It is so amazing. I can't even imagine being able to create something like this. Absolutely amazing.
