Stitched Illustrations by Peter Crawley

December 22, 2010

Embroidery month continues here at Colossal. After a road trip across the U.S., Buckinghamshire-based artist Peter Crawley was inspired to stitch his travels onto a map. Apparently Crawley took to the medium rather quickly and he’s been unable to put down the thread ever since. His portfolio is chalk full of architectural renderings, geometric forms, typography and other illustrations all painstakingly sewn into pierced watercolor paper using cotton thread.
