Amazing Drawings Made with Pins and Thread

UK artist Debbie Smyth uses pins and thread instead of ink and paper in her odd-yet-unique drawings. The self-described textile artist bridges the gap between embroidery and illustration, adding a multidimensional component to the otherwise 2D medium of hand-drawn art. Smyth lifts and stretches threads, tightening them and pinning them down to add or decrease tension, effectively creating a new hybrid art form that’s neither fine art nor crafting, but both.
