How was your 4th of July weekend? Mine was hot...very very hot. On Sunday, I braved the heat to walk around the Cherry Creek Arts Festival in Denver. And before I melted, I purchased the cool piece of art pictured above.
The artist, Andrew Johnson, creates his pieces with a technique called Embroidery Digitizing. The process involves sketching and coloring an image, importing it into a program and then building the design stitch by stitch. He describes it as "painting with stitches" and his designs have an average of 20,000 stitches per piece.
