Peter Crawley’s Stitched Illustrations

From a distance, Crawley’s works appear to simply be pen and paper line drawings. Upon closer inspection, however, they are revealed to be something much more fascinating

From a distance, Peter Crawley’s works appear to simply be pen and paper line drawings. Upon closer inspection, however, they are revealed to be something much more fascinating. By intricately weaving cotton thread in and out of watercolor paper, Crawley has created a series of images that unless looked at very closely, genuinely look as if they were drawn rather than sewn.

Originally inspired by the fine line detailing of cartography, Crawley has applied the technique to “illustrate” architecture, typography and geometric patterns.
