Stitched Portraits: Maurice Sendak

(b. Jun. 10, 1928) A master of his craft. Last year, when he passed, I made this doll as tribute. And on his birthday, I stitched his portrait. He would be 85 this year. Happy birthday Maurice. Hope you're sitting with Jennie.

Stitched Portraits: Me

In October of this year I will be giving a stitched demonstration in the RISD Museum. I never really thought I would be showing any of my work in any museum anytime soon...
So it was a welcome surprise when the opportunity arose.

The event will be publicized by the museum and they will need to show some type of image to represent what it is that I do. However, nothing I've made thus far represents the tenor of the discourse I would like to have. This led to a frantic Friday and Saturday of searching.
But I eventually decided that I needed a self-portrait to share...

...and I am forever split between cartoon-me and real me...
...You decide?
