Experiments with Typography and Embroidery

A good friend and fellow artist recently participated in both Pulse and Fountain art fairs in Miami. When he got back to New York, he said: "People were smoking weed at Fountain and drinking champagne at Pulse." One of my new favorite quotes.

I am making a humorous take on this, combining machine and hand embroidery *see below. This is obviously still in progress.

GrindrPoets

Thanks to some hilarious NYU students for sharing their thoughts and poetry this past Monday evening at 61 Local. Keep This Bag Away from Children, a literary magazine, hosted a fun reading. I especially loved Maggie Lee's Twitter poems (@Maggie44). 

I walked away with inspiration for the attached embroidery.
