name :: Stan Lee

completed :: March 2012

size :: 4" diameter

materials :: scrap cotton, acrylic & wool felt, twill, moleskine, glass beads, faux fur, embroidery floss, embroidery hoop

notes :: I was asked to have my work featured on therealstanlee.com (Stan Lee's official website) and I immediately wanted to do a fooplique of Stan, since I'd even thought about it before. The biggest challenge was trying to do the sunglasses, but I came up with a weird and fiddly way to make them look like plastic. The annoying thing is I spent a bit of time researching his "trademark outfits" to make sure I had them right, but then I got the parting on his hair wrong! Ah those aggravating little details.
