New Media

Thanks to cool stitchy blog Mr. X Stitch and a link from a friend, we've discovered artist Benjamin Shine, whose works look like sketches from afar but, in fact, are created with mixed media threaded through eyelets screwed into various backgrounds. The image of Prince Albert of Monaco that appears above, for example, was created using reused plastic bags threaded through recycled plastic eyelets screwed into granulated, heat-compressed recycled bottles. Amazing, no?
