Stitchgasm – RuPaul X Stitch animation by Aubrey Longley-Cook


Have you seen the amazing RuStitch X stitch animation yet?

Aubrey Longley Cook - Rustitch Animation Still

 

Atlanta-based artist Aubrey Longley-Cook created a community art project when he enlisted 35 artists to contribute an X stitched frame, containing 12,800 stitches. Each stitcher’s color scheme is unique to their frame. They matched the colors they chose tonally to the original footage, and the embroideries exploded into a rainbow of colors when composited together.

I stitched Frame 11 and wrote about my experiences on my own blog. You can read more about the experiences of another participating artist, Sally Hansell on the Huffington Post.

Aubrey made two versions of the animation, a front version and a back.
