Aaaand embroidery number 3, a green and blue triskele.
Used a split stitch for this one, and I really like how it turned out! Did some accents with blue, not sure if I like how those worked out… I think I know of ways I could have done them better, but ah well, c'est la vie!
Now, what will my next one be…
All right! Say hello to my first ever finished embroidery project. :)
I'm pretty proud of how it turned out for my first try! I really need to work on my chain stitch, though, that crap is haaard…
Also, the signing of my initials and the date could be a bit more legible… I should use fewer strands next time.
But! Progress! Now to figure out what the next one will be…
Hey, folks! Here, have a short comic I made for school back in 2014.
It's called "Home". It's about my last experience living with roommates.

Art dealing with disordered eating
Here's an old self-portrait from 2011 (done for art school), when I was in the midst of some terrible body health issues that made it really hard to eat.
(Turned out it was the birth control pills that were giving me constant morning sickness symptoms; but I wouldn't figure that out until much later, and by then my anxiety had latched onto nausea and not-eating as one of its main symptoms. :\)
