{First Fridays} Another Month, Another Art Show.

The theme this month is geek.  I’m not a geek.  My husband is, most of my friends are.  I’m just not.  I’m really more of a nerd.  Being all about authenticity I was having a really hard time with this one.

I was google searching everything I could think of;

Geek, define.

What is a geek?

What is geek culture?

Who is a geek?

Geek movies

Geek themes

Geek subjects

Everything that I remotely knew about wasn’t enough to spend time on.

Finally I dropped it.

A friend of mine is going to school to be a mortician and I said to myself, “That is what I geek out about”  DING.

Anatomy.  I lurve me some human biology.  Duh.

So, I made some stuff.  I’m calling this “Sketch Embroidery”

I used mostly 1 strand and did either backstitch, stem stitch or a double running stitch.  It took some time.  :)
