You may have already heard of Kari Breitigam but i've just come across her work over the past couple of days. I love the illustrations themselves, especially the ones from her All the Pretty Boys collection, but i also can't quite take my eyes off of the stitching. There's nothing i love more than a good satin stitch! When done correctly, its smooth and begging to be touched. Kari is from Houston and makes embroidered jewellery as well as artworks. You can find more on her website.
