This is the very first patch I made, based off of an original concept drawing I did around 6 months ago. I just used embroidery floss, a regular sewing needle, and and old t-shirt for the patch backing- I even used just hot glue to stick it on to my jacket the first time! So many hours went into this, and despite being confident I could achieve way better results if I redid this patch with the proper materials and skill I have now, I really like the ragged and diy look of the patch. I think the unity of the piece generated by the continuity of the texture stitch by stitch (chapter 10), makes the obscure and maybe gorey imagery more acceptable as art. Having this piece on my arm when I wear this jacket, I think shows some color, personality, and interesting commentary, as opposed to like a penchant for dead animals or something edgy like that.
