Embroidered X-Rays? WOW!

See more work here...

An artist from Philadelphia has mixed two worlds and created something very special, Matthew Cox mixes X-Rays with embroidery, actually stitching over X-Rays to join the two together.

His soul purpose of creating the pieces is to show contrast between The stereotypical Masculine 'Doctor/Surgeon' and Femininity with Embroidery, whilst bringing them together to blend well.

I Love It!

We Remember

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

We give thanks to everybody who made the sacrifice, we wouldn't have what we do have today.

Pinch, punch, first of the month!

It's November but November is no ordinary month, it is home to Movember, a portmanteau of "moustache" and "November". The idea of the Movember is to grow a Moustache throughout the month of November, no shaving, no joining up with beards, just a good ol' slug on the upper lip.

It started in 1999 by a group of men in Adelaide, Australia. The men grew moustaches to raise money for the RSPCA, using the slogan 'Whiskers for Whiskers', it has since then snowballed across the globe and progressed to raising money for a whole range of mens health issues including cancer & depression.

Communities, work places, schools and just about anyone (except women?) can grow a moustache and raise some money for a great cause, and of course you get to grow that moustache you have always secretly dreamt about, so why not give it a go!
