Tiny City

Found on Flickr

I love this detailed embroidery (with the addition of a bit of gold paint) by Andrea Farina. It's called 'Tiny City'. To me it looks like a Huge City on a Tiny Planet but maybe that's just me. :) Andrea makes illustrations too and I think some of them would look wonderful when stitched, like this one. Find more 'thread sketches' by Andrea here.


  1. This piece is gorgeous! I can't wait to see more of her work. Thanks for posting this.

  2. Yay! Thanks for featuring my work!

    It's called "Tiny City on a Gold Planet" because the embroidery itself is actually very small and is part of a series of similarly proportioned cities. I never thought about it as a huge city... haha but I love it.

    Thanks again :)

    1. You're welcome! And thanks for explaining the 'tiny' bit in 'tiny city', I thought I was missing something here but it was actually pretty obvious. :)
