What People Are Saying About Penny

"I like to think of you as a high priced call girl that the unwashed masses can't afford--like Woody Allen's Whore of Mensa. It's not your fault that people offer $10 blowjobs on the street corner. It's not an insult if somebody doesn't buy your art." -Alexandra J Walters

"Once Penny was making her own silk thread, and a midget appeared. Before he could open his ugly mouth, without looking up, she exclaimed, 'Rumpelstiltskin. Now get the fuck out of here.' Fairytale Over."- Beth Featherstone

"Penny can push a needle through a telephone pole without a thimble." -Shane Blaufuss

"When a man asked Penny, 'What’s the meaning of life?' She looked at him for exactly 3 minutes, completely still, until he cried. That man’s name was Steve Jobs."- Beth Featherstone

"A demon from the pits of bitch cunt." -W.C. Hurst

"pulitzer for you too." -John Lurie

Not Safe For Work Swap!

If embroidered graphic sex upsets you, don't scroll down!!! You've been warned!!!!

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.

Lost Girls

Lost Girls

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!

You can see this piece in progress on the Penny Nickels facebook page.
