A Hand stitched Clueless Heart Throb- As if!

I confess, I’m a little bit 90’s obsessed. So I had loads of fun with this embroidery piece which allowed me to indulge my 90’s nostalgia while making something my swap partner would get a kick out of. What do you mean you haven’t seen Clueless? As if!

Paul Rudd textile art

Maybe you’ll recognise this guy as Paul Rudd, ( it’s Josh!  Cher’s love interest in classic 90’s movie Clueless). I wanted it to look like a denim jacket patch or a drawing pinned up in your locker. You know, real heart-throb doodling on the back of your exercise book stuff.

Paul Rudd Detail

Confession time: I used a post Clueless pic of the actor for reference though, as I worried he wouldn’t be distinct enough in this small piece ( I hoped his hair and pose here would help make him recognizable) the finished portrait is only 5.5 x7.5 inches tall.

Look how complicated this little piece is- those shadows where a head wreck!

Lots of complicated little shadows – dark areas marked with an ‘X’ comic inker style

And OF COURSE the background had to be PINK and really wouldn’t be complete without Cher’s catchphrase “As If!”

(This was created for my fellow stitcher, Jessica Kelly of Paper Stitch fame and you can see tonnes of her fantastic work here.)
