An 18-page embroidered newspaper

April 15, 2011

Christopher Jobson

For her masters graduate project Belgian designer Ashley Noben spent a year researching the credibility of news outlets. As an output of that endeavor she embroidered, by hand, 18 pages of real news creating her own textile newspaper, De Gobelin. See more of the project here. Thanks Ashley for sharing your work with Colossal! (via quipsologies)

Nike Schroeder

Loving this raw, unfinished embroidered illustration work by Berlin-based artist Nike Schroeder. Via her web site:

Her work is composed carefully and extremely detailed and at the same time seemingly rough and unfinished, leaving the ends of the thread hanging out of the pictures like a possible accident. The loose thread adds an incidental component which is sometimes the result of coincidence and at other times the consequence of precise calculation. Either way the falling threads enrich the work with a movement, the association to gravity and the resemblance of possible body fluids such as blood.

@MayorEmanuel Embroidered Tweets

March 13, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Enterprising textile/embroidery artist cauchy09 has begun stitching some of @MayorEmanuel‘s most epic tweets into lovely embroidered notes. Quick backstory: Columbia College journalism professor Daniel Sinker recently outed himself as the individual behind a foul-mouthed twitter account that satirized former chief of staff (and Chicago mayoral candidate) Rahm Emanuel in the run-up to the 2011 election. This clip from the Colbert Report should explain everything. These embroidered tweets could become a cottage industry.

2011 Embroidered Calendar

February 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Iwona Przybyla created this DIY embroidery calendar concept that would come packaged with the materials needed to stitch the typography for each month. I think regardless of your skill level with needle and thread you would feel pretty accomplished finishing the year. Really beautiful. (via typography served)
