Embroider Me This

When I spot extremely well done and thought provoking art, it can be literally breathtaking. While browsing the blog Lost, I discovered embroiderer, painter, and photographer Daniel Kornrumpf. At first glance the medium looks as if it could be acrylic or oil, but upon closer inspection I found that he is actually hand embroidering these portraits. My grandmother used to embroider, but she has nothing on Kornrumpf.
