I’ve just finished sewing a batch of 7 deer for my Etsy shop! ^_^ This time I was inspired by faded vintage colours. After working on these deer for a few days, I realized where my inspiration had come from. I’ve been so excited about going to see Audrey Kawasaki‘s upcoming show at the Copro Nason Gallery in Santa Monica, that I subconsciously used Audrey’s palette on my deer! Inspiration really can come from all places! ^_^
The last deer is Lily, a Gothic Deer. Lily had actually been finished for a while (she’s made a sneaky appearance in a few of my studio pics), but I didn’t know how I wanted to finish her off yet. I tried experimenting with red stitching, to give her a slashed look, which I hope I’ve achieved without making her look too grotesque.
