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;
What is a geek?
What is geek culture?
Who is a geek?
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.
Both pieces will be for sale this friday, May 2nd at Two Brother’s Roundhouse. artBar, Geek Show.
