ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Walking Dead artist Tony Moore says: "Knowing how long it took me to draw this damn thing in pen and ink, I'm particularly honored and impressed by this painstaking Walking Dead cross-stitch!"
ion: A page from The Walking Dead incredibly recreated in cross-stitch
I’m a big fan of cross-stich, and have done some myself (http://thesketchypixel.com/projects/slow-news). My critique of this piece would be that while it is extremely impressive on a technical level, on an artistic level, the transformation from ink to stitches adds very little to the original work. It doesn’t add the essential pixelated quality that cross-stitch provides, but rather tries to match the original forms too exactly, and ends up as merely a copy.
Yours are pretty great. But this piece seems like it was created with a different objective completely. The greatest artists of history spent plenty of time trying to make exact copies of extant work.
