Peter Crawley

I just came across this amazing illustration who uses stitching to create his pieces.  His first piece was inspired on a road trip across America, he wanted to illustrate the journey in some way.  Inspiration was taken from the fine line detailing the route that he made. 

He has used this style on many architecture buildings; he has included some of the most famous building, typography and geometric patterns. 

To begin creating one of his pieces he carefully chooses his subject and he uses hand drawn and Adobe Illustrator vector files to create a template and guide.  He uses 420msg watercolour paper and pierces by hand with a pin, and then stitches with cotton thread.
