GRiZ's music & message has been crucial for me over the years, especially after being a victim of a mugging in late 2013. There was a cross-stitch I stopped working on after that night, which I was finally able to bring myself to complete during the pandemic.
Since then, I've been cross stitching the bands & artists that helped me out of that period. I find the anxiety relief that comes from the process of stitching pairs well with the feel-good funky vibes of his music.
Pattern Creation & Materials
I created the pattern by using his official logo and combining it with his Twitch art. The raw materials used were a table cloth that was gifted to me from an older lady, and embroidery thread from a sister who lost her creative sibling. I felt like this would be the perfect project to give these items new life!
