The World Of Tomorrow Cross Stitch

World Of Tomorrow
Title: The World Of Tomorrow
Date Completed: June 2010
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Colours: 7

One of my major interests is retro futurism, and art of the era, and I wanted to make a pattern which sort of holds the enthusiasm that was around at the time. I have made larger patterns, which I think look a lot better and have that real retro art deco poster feel to them, which are on my list of projects, sadly it keeps getting pushed back though 🙁 (Apparently this was my 23rd pattern…)

Space Invader School
Title: Space Invader School
Date Completed: April 2010
Design: Neil Grefory/Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Colours: 8
Video Game: Space Invaders

This is based on a tshirt on threadless called “A Simple Plan” which is one of their best sellers, I changed the sprites to be correct (As I’m not selling it I don’t have to bother with copywrite laws :D) and so the colours pop out. Currently hanging on my wall.

Fire n Ice
Title: Fire n Ice/Solomon’s Key
Date Completed: March 2010
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Canvas: Black
Colours: 4
Video Game: Fire N Ice

I really loved this game after playing it on an emulator, and some americans will know it as fire n ice, where as us europeans called it soloman’s key 2, on the snes. Seeing as the game was so simple I wanted to reflect that in the design. I hope to make other fire n ice patterns too.

Count: 14

Video Game: Pacman, Space Invaders & Dig Dug

I sort of fell upon this idea by accident, but apparently quite a few people like it, so I can’t complain 😛 I was planning on doing another for different games, and making an etsy item where you can choose your games. I think the next one will be galactican, racer x, and asteroids…

Fallout Nuka Cola Diarama

Nuka Cola Diarama 1

After playing fallout 3, I got a bit obsessed, and so decided to make a nuka cola bottle. Over time I added a quantum, and made up a display case with real glass and LEDs in the base to light up the quantum.
