Animated emboidery (filled)

Runaway & Running Backwards, 
heavily detailed animated embroidery by Aubrey Longley-Cook

Also of interest... this artist is currently working on a big project called RU STITCH-
The RuPaul Cross Stitch Animation Workshop is an community based embroidery and animation project. The 35 participants were taught to cross stitch, and they are currently working together to create an embroidered looping animation of RuPaul based on footage from the "Supermodel" music video. Each of the participants were assigned an individualized template based on the footage. They are each responsible for the creation of one of the cross stitch frames. Each frame is 12,800 stitches. Since the original footage is B&W, each stitcher's color scheme is unique to their frame. They each picked their colors and matched their choices tonally to the original footage for registration purposes. The embroideries will animate in a rainbow of colors when composited together. There will be two animations created from the project. One will document the front view of the frames and one the back. The frames and animations will be displayed as part of Serving Face in September, 2013.
