I made a series of drawings in 2016 to celebrate and honor the all mighty sacred mushrooms. Here in the Pacific Northwest we take our mushrooms very seriously, we even have an annual festival to celebrate mushrooms in the fall. This little gem of an amanita mushroom is called the Amanita Augusta. It has a luscious coppery brown top and its absolutely regal. It was a delight to draw it and watch it come to life with my pencils. This image lives in a set of prayer flags too: https://www.etsystudio.com/listing/497398355/mushroom-prayer-flags?ref=shop_home_active_4
This patch is made from 100% recycled pop bottle polyester and a dye sublimation print. Dye sublimation is an extremely durable textile printing process by which the image is digitally printed with dye onto transfer paper and then fused with heat and pressure onto the fabric. Then I add fabric adhesive to the back of the patch. The adhesive/glue is activated with a hot iron and a damp cloth and it helps you sew the patch onto an article of clothing or a bag or a backpack or fabric to hang on your wall or a quilt.
