Ann Khokhlova’s Poetic Embroidered Illustrations

I’m blown away by all of the col­or and tex­ture that’s in these illus­tra­tions by Ann Khokhlo­va. The lus­cious appli­ca­tion of thread/yarn makes for dense com­po­si­tions that are very expres­sive. They are a sea of stitch­es, and I like how Khokhlo­va uses the chain stitch to cre­ate waves of col­or that sends your eye on a jour­ney as she depicts nar­ra­tive folk-inspired tales.
