Inspired by the pop-culture phenomenon: Tiger King!
What could possibly make a better cross-stitch than Joe Exotic's rambling campaign videos?
I am not cutting my hair.
I refuse to wear a suit.
I am gay.
I've had some kinky sex.
I've tried drugs.
I'm broke as shit.
I can relate to....most of these, as can many of you stitchers out there.
For the design of this pattern I was inspired by classic antique "prayer" cross-stitch designs where key words of prayers or scriptures are randomly capitalized.
Except this is the gospel of Joe. And...no one wants to hear it.
This original design uses a navy blue vintage font, and a vintage border inspired by traditional floral cross stitch motifs in green, blue, red, yellow, and a healthy amount of orange.
Because tigers are orange.
Hand stitched and Framed in an 8x10 brown wood frame
