Embroidery might seem like an odd choice for use in editorial illustration, but Ann Khokhlova proves that it can be a stunning sight. Her series for The Prime Russian Magazine showcases the beauty of thread and needle, as seas of stitches produce highly-textured compositions. These tiny marks are sewn in different directions, creating the illusion that they’re in motion. This style complements her cast of characters, as the stitches depict them climbing trees and traversing waters.
