drawing with thread

Drawing in thread is one of my current interests. I make all of the images for my klt:works products by using this method. These drawings come from the fact that I am always searching for a challenge and a new way to draw. Being enamored by blind contour drawings and methods of drawing and painting that take away my control, I turned to the sewing machine. I thought it might be interesting to see what would happen if I started drawing people from my imagination straight onto canvas by using the sewing machine as my drawing tool and one continuous motion. These drawings are not sketched out first and they embrace artistic chance.

Portfolio Sample:
