Title: N7 Date Completed: September 2014 Design: Lord Libidan Count: 18 Canvas: Black Colours: 2 Video Game: Mass Effect Trilogy
This image has actually been a long time coming. After playing Mass Effect 2 I had this idea, but never saw it through. Recently however I’ve been on a kick for limited colours in patterns, and this just fitted perfectly. The off centre vertical line is meant to be reminiscent of the iconic armour.
Title: Mirrors Edge Tattoo Date Completed: September 2014 Design: Lord Libidan Count: 18 Canvas: White Colours: 1 Video Game: Mirrors Edge
This stitch actually started very differently. I often stitch sailor style tattoos based on games series, like pokemon, assassins creed and portal, and this started as one too. On my researching I came across the mirrors edge tattoo, and I was too captivated to do anything else.
Title: Mass Effect Shadow Poster Date Completed: August 2014 Design: Lord Libidan Count: 18 Canvas: Black Colours: 2 Video Game: Mass Effect Trilogy
I’ve really been craving a good game like Mass Effect recently, and with a few sneak peaks coming from E3, what better excuse than to make a stitch devoted to it? I really tried to capture the loneliness you get when finally fighting the reapers at the end of the third game, just before your buddies show up to kick ass. I also submitted this as an entry in the Sprite Stitch shadow challenge.
Title: Shadow Of Colossus Shadow Date Completed: July 2014 Design: Lord Libidan Count: 18 Canvas: White Colours: 8 Video Game: Shadow Of Colossus
One of my all time favourite Sprite Stitch challenges was the shadow challenge. In particular, my friend PixelStitches did an awesome Shadow of Colossus piece. I’d been thinking about doing something similar for a while, so when I got an oddly shaped frame, I used the excuse.
Title: No Man’s Sky Date Completed: June 2014 Design: Lord Libidan Count: 18 Canvas: White Colours: 3 Video Game: No Man’s Sky
E3 looked epic this year to me. A new assassins creed would do that on its own though. However the stand out winner was No Man’s Sky. My original idea was to do a landscape with the fun colours of the game, but during my searches I found this awesome logo ensemble was too good to pass up on.
Title: Lightsaber Blueprint Date Completed: June 2014 Design: Lord Libidan Count: 14 Canvas: Blue Colours: 1 Pop Culture: Star Wars
After visiting the Pompidou Centre in Paris, I had an idea for an archaeological blueprint. Also resting in my mind was my recent sabre handle. Within a week I had researched, designed and stitched this piece. I also intend to extend this idea to larger scale projects.
Title: Dragon Priest Mask Iphone Case Date Completed: April 2014 Design: Lord Libidan Count: 14 Canvas: Plastic Colours: 8 Video Game: Skyrim
Following a few cross stitched iPhone covers last year, I found a higher count version. I found a whole load of awesome stuff online that other people had done, but I couldn’t come up with anything myself. Then, as random luck would have it, my friend BlackMageHeart mentioned dragons. And 3 days later, it was stitched!
Over the last few weeks I had been approached by Mr X Stitch to be featured in his first exhibition, in Bedford, UK. He was curating a contemporary needlework show at a pop up shop on the Bedford High Street.
The colourful exhibition in the BedPop shop featured sewn works from Bedford, and around the globe, and had pieces which range from the whimsical to thought-provoking but all display extraordinary skill with a needle and thread… Jamie (Mr X Stitch) has been working for two months gathering the pieces, some he sourced via his stitching website (www.mrxstitch.com), others have been submitted by the Bedford branch of the Embroiderer’s Guild.”
