Hand Embroidery: Say Anything Stormtrooper

Continuing with the theme of embroidered “mash-ups”; here is my Say Anything Stormtrooper embroidery piece. I love the idea of taking iconic images, keeping their meaning but shifting the subject matter. In this case, I wanted to replace the somewhat subservient role of “Lloyd”, and the Stormtrooper felt like a fitting comic relief. This piece also gave me a chance to play with different methods of adding texture and detailing on a broadly one-color piece through strategic stitch direction and varying yarn gauge.
