The Portrait Project is a series of 10 stitched portraits by London-based artist Evelin Kasikov. Each portrait is created with an actual Polaroid picture as the starting point, and is based on the same grid. The idea is similar to pointillism, but instead of dots she uses squares, crosses, and lines of different colors and weights. 10-15 feet of cotton thread does into each piece, and stitching them takes between two days and a week to complete.
Wow. I can’t believe it’s been almost three months since PetaPixel was started back on May 14th. Things have gotten pretty exciting since then, both here on this blog and with our Twitter account.
