CR stitch up
One of Peter Crawley's stitched illustrations featured on the Feed section of this site recently, and in the current issue of CR. Yesterday, we got another piece of his work in the post
"Thought you might appreciate a bespoke CR stitched illustration," said the note on the back. Well yes, yes we did. It's absolutely beautiful. Crawley rendered our initials in black thread on a piece of white card 28cm square.
His other work includes illustrations of famous landmarks including the Empire State Building (the image that featured in CR).
and Broadcasting House
plus a charming series in collaboration with Ben the Illustrator
and these circles
See it all on his website here.
Crawley is interviewed about his work on the Mat Dolphin blog here

Those circles just take me back to 70s/80s pin & string drawings, just without the golden braid...
Don't see enough of this technique. Good stuff.
Love Peter's work, so original, such a design/craft talent! Quick plug, our collaboration pieces (the animals seen above) will be on sale from 1st December!
the stitched illustration is beautiful. love the close-up shots. fantastic!
Now this i do like!
Very beautiful, I really like the idea of drawing with thread. Would love to see this technique done with a less precise approach, tho beautiful they seem empty. The CR piece is great because the black thread is used fill in the gaps (literally) )instead of the usual black. So simple and so effective.
Love these Peter, great stuff mate.
Absolutely awesome work Peter! So original and beautifully simple.
Feel free to check out our recent interview with Peter over on our blog:
Great from every angle!
I have to admit, I have never had creative & craft envy of this sorts ever in my design work/education history. Absolutely beautiful work!
