Started the preliminary sketches for an embroidered canvas this last Friday... It's still hard for me to work with simple lines (I'm used to working with a lot of loose lines and shading). For this canvas (a medium-sized oval convex canvas), I'm going to embroider a sort of endangered/extinct/fantasy animal Last Supper... I should have pictures of my progress later in the day!
I am Melissa Banigan. I've been many things under the sun, but am currently a single mom raising an amazing kid in Brooklyn, writing novels and short stories, and working on some art (canvases and paper). I also, under the moniker melifera, produce off-the-cusp embroidered clothing and bags.
