Space Invader Etched Glass

Title: Space Invader Etched Pint Glass
Date Completed: November 2012
Design: Lord Libidan
Video Game: Space Invaders
 
Having worked on my etched Pacman pint glass, I had another glass free, so working on eactly the same principle, I have a Space Invader attacking, whilst a gun defends against it. On the base of the glass are the words “GAME OVER” which you can see after finishing your drink.
As the Pacman glass was my first, I expected this one to be slightly clearer on the edges, however the glass etching cream worked its way under the tape and so its less neat (although hardly noticable).

I also created an etched Pacman pint glass at the some time.

Pacman Etched Glass

Title: Pac Man Etched Pint Glass
Date Completed: November 2012
Design: Lord Libidan
Video Game: Pacman
 
Waga-waga! I’ve seen quite a few etched glasses over the years, and I’ve always wanted to try my hand, but was never able (its REALLY hard to find glass etching cream in the UK). I finally found some, and needed some interesting pint glasses to take to work. My intention was to make the glass look great from the front, however when I finally sat down and got to it, I realised a round the glass design would work best. The only thing I know that chases each other from video games was Pacman.
Around the glass is Pacman is eating pellets and in turn and chasing a ghost. Similarly the ghost is chasing Pacman.
I have a few pint glasses at home from varous beer companies and its common to have a message at the bottom of your drink so you can read it once you’ve finished. As a result I added “GAME OVER” in a pixelated font.

Fat Sonic Cross Stitch

Title: Dr Robotnik
Date Completed: October 2012
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 16
Canvas: White
Colours: 13
Video Game: Sonic The Hedgehog

Not happy with just my Dr Robotnik stitch, I also made a sonic one too! But none of that boring copying a sprite, no, I choose to take a sprite from a fan’s game, Fat Sonic, which is based on the theory that if Sonic actually ate all those rings, we would be HUGE! This is his last state of fatness.

Count: 14
Canvas: Light Blue
Colours: 18
Video Game: Sonic The Hedgehog

Sonic is one of my favourite games, and I’ve always wanted to do some sprites but never really thought of a good pattern. Then, when playing through the first stage, I saw Robotnik’s wacky ship, and thought, what better?

Pokemon Battle! Cross Stitch


Title: Pokemon Battle!
Date Completed: August 2012
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 16
Canvas: White
Colours: 29
Video Game: Pokemon

I’ve always thought the one (and there is only one) problem with the pokemon games is that the battles could’ve been more like the anime. Well, I went about making it.
This is ash and pikachu verses Gary oak. Made up of sprites from the original games, and the FireRed and LeafGreen rereleases.

I’m in Creative Crafting Magazine!

This month has been a bit hectic for me, for a super secret reason I can’t get into right now, but lets just say it has something to do with a fully licensed and published book 😀

But it doesn’t just stop there!

I was also featured in the fairly new Creative Crafting online magazine thanks to my friend Mr X Stitch.


You can check out the magazine over at their website and don’t worry if its no longer August, you can check out the back issues!
 
I’ve now been published quite a few times. I’ve been the author and contributor to the Hello Kitty Cross Stitch Kit, the Star Wars Cross Stitch Kit, the Star Trek Cross-Stitch: Explore Strange New Worlds of Crafting book, the Disney Classic Cross Stitch Kit, and the Mr X Stitch Guide to Cross Stitch book. I’ve also been involved a series of magazines such as the CrossStitcher twice, the CrossStitcher Designer Stitches magazine, CrossStitchCrazy, and the XStitch Mag.

I’m in the Cross Stitcher!

My good friend Jamie Chalmers, aka Mr X Stitch, was interviewed for the June issue of The Cross Stitcher, and he mentioned me in his top 5 artists! You can’t get a higher honour than that can you?

If you want to find yourself a copy, you can buy it on Wednesday! Or you can buy it online too!

Space Invader QR Code Cross Stitch

Title: Space Invader QR Code
Date Completed: March 2011
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Canvas: White
Colours: 2
Video Game: Space Invaders

This was inspired by a recent exhibition in London where I got to show some of my work. Along with it was a QR code by stitchFIGHT, a genius embroiderer. It was such a hit, I just had to have a go. It’s very similar to stitchFIGHT’s code, but I took it to the next level. And it works too! Have a try.

Sadly, the colours make it hard to read for some readers, but it does work on some.

3D Transforming Soundwave Cross Stitch

Title: 3D Transforming Soundwave
Date Completed: March 2012
Design: Lord Libidan
Count: 14
Canvas: Plastic
Colours: 6
Show: Transformers
 
After doing my optimus prime transformer and jetfire transformer, people started to notice me. I had a few requests for other patterns, in the majority was this one, sound wave.
The previous tapes I made fit into his cassette deck, and there are a few more coming. I also wanted to have a little more fun with this one, and try to make it as best I could on the first try, so it also has two batteries in his back which convert to a cannon on his shoulder and a gun on his arm.
I am also planning on making a starscream, and might try my hand at megaton, although he is going to be EXTREMELY hard to do…

You can buy this pattern, and my other transformers on my Etsy shop, so go have a look!
