CMYK embroidery

Evelin Kasikov pushes the conceptual boundaries of conventional printing by turning it into a meticulously manual process: embroidery, one of the oldest crafts (dated back to 5th-3rd century BC). Kind of ironic, as printing in CMYK is, in the full spectrum of history, fairly recent (well, subtractive color isn’t recent, just industrial revolution printing techniques are). She says The idea of handmade print started as an academic project. Now, most of my work is based on that. I have created CMYK embroidered illustrations for clients such as The Guardian and WIRED, as well as worked on numerous private commissions.
