Sewing Machine







I've got to say, Jane Mount's work really caught my eye. Perhaps it was her glorious rendition of the Black Stallion that stopped me in my tracks. Call it animal magnetism. The first time I noticed her stuff was on 20x200 (a fun watercolour of a bookshelf, a style Jane is more known for). Just recently I discovered her embroidered animal series. I find them darling with the right amount of humor. Like, who doesn't find a crafty portrait of the cloned sheep Dolly hilarious? Check out her Etsy shop with other great bookshelf illustrations. They're pretty great.

Me too. Aren't they just great? I'll have to show my art department I know they'll get a kick out of them.
