Got some serious eye candy for you today. Birgitte Busk is a textile artist in Denmark who creates freehand thread painting portraits, using an ordinary sewing machine and mad skills.
Many of her pieces are on the super-photorealistic side…
…but they’re just as gorgeous when she lets the stitchiness show.
She creates portraits on commission…
…and dabbles in other things, too.
