DMC x Mélanie Johnsson

Commission to create a collection of 10 original illustrations for DMC. I was completely free to draw what I wanted, as long as it reflected my bold and colorful style. I chose to paint a series of tropical animals and picked my favourite threads to get them embroidered. The illustrations are now free patterns that can be downloaded on DMC's website.

My favourite definitely is the tropical fish. I love its lush green thread and red french knot eyes! But I wouldn't say no to a pair of jeans with embroidered shells on them...
