Jim Houser

Last year when I was surfing on the net I met the paintings of Jim Houser. It was love at first sight, the colours and shapes he uses are just fantastic. At Fecal Face you can find an old interview with him and some of his work.

His paintings inspired me to make my own painting. I just had one little problem, I'm not a painter. Therefore I made my painting in felt. I started collecting symbols, cut them out and sewed them on my "canvas". I used a few embroidery stitches to give some symbols a little extra refinement.

I hope you like it.
