Rob & Jame: Week 7:
Rob & Jame's Update:
This week, after finishing a trial embroidery depicting a single palm tree on a sunny Florida beach (week 5), Rob turned his efforts to a large embroidery project for The Bridge:
In week 3, I posted a preliminary design sketch showing a beachside city’s switch to turtle friendly lighting along the coast. I am attempting to capture the effect of this change on a city’s color palette. Also in the sketch, I incorporated our collaboration’s theme, “The City Never Sleeps.” Here’s what the initial design looked like:
In my first week of work, I wanted to figure out a method for creating the lettering for our theme. I very rarely incorporate text into embroideries so this was a fun challenge! I used some chalk to mark an outline for the boundaries of my text box, and then very lightly traced each letter, include the built-in streetlights on the first letter of each word. Can you recognize which embroidery stitch was used for the lettering? (hint: see week 5)
