Firstly, I have to say that my arm is feeling a lot more comfortable. The break was holding when I went to the hospital and they were reluctant to do much in case it fell apart. The techies in the plaster room nearly had a fit when they looked at it and got to work with the electric saw. You know what it is like when you have a tooth drilled? Well just like that only the vibration was in my bones. Poor man was feeling my pain as much as I was but now the bones are not moving around as much and my fingers have been freed. Given another week or so I may be able to steady an embroidery hoop and I am not in constant pain.
Now, my find is new to me, but not to a lot of other people. The artists name is Ivan Semesyuk and he is from the Ukraine. His focus is Textile Design, Painting and Illustration.
When I first saw his work I though it was Mexican embroidered motives,
but then I found he was also using traditional Ukrainian motives as well.
He has the feel of Reg Mombassa and I have a feeling that if I could read the Russian script there would be a similarity to Mambo T shirts.
I thought at first that all the fill stitching had been done by machine,
but when I looked at a short animation of his work on his Facebook page I am pretty sure that this is hand embroidered. These details also looks like hand work.
You can view all his work online at behance and buy some of his work in this online shop.
The price of the bags and T shirts look very low but I bet the shipping will be expensive. An original embroidery is around $550 US$.
