Ann Khokhlova’s Poetic Embroidered Illustrations

ann khokhlova

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.
