Over at Phat Quarter we held a NSFW Swap which is winding down now. Johnny Murder received this piece from Ruby42, and that lady is equally gifted in talent and humor.
Here is Ruby's piece
It glows in the dark. She's a bad lady!
I'm still waiting on my piece, I'll post it when it arives, but here's the piece I made for Mr. X Stitch.
completed in 25 hours, 3 minutes.
This is a hand embroidered representation of an illustration from Alan Moore's Lost Girls.
If Alan Moore sounds familiar, it's because he's the mad genius behind Watchmen, V for Vendetta, Swap Thing... Yeah, and he HATES those movies. Anyway, apparently he wanted to do a porno comic, but it's so much more than that.
Lost Girls is set in a upscale hotel where Alice (Through the Looking Glass) Dorothy (The Wizard of OZ) and Wendy (Peter and Wendy) are all on holiday. As they meet each other, they begin to tell stories of their early sexual experiences. For example, Dorothy's first orgasm was during the tornado, and her first sexual partner was a man who worked on her farm. I give you a hint... He didn't have a brain...
So when you read Alan Moores interpretation of these classics you find his ideas are so convincing it's difficult to believe the original authors hadn't intended these stories to be sexual metaphors. I highly recommend picking it up.
Anyway, Mr. X Stitch is a fellow comic nerd, so I knew an embroidered illustration from the book would be perfect for him!
