Indian Giver has been an ultimate favorite of mine for years. First, I love the reclamation of a name that was once meant to be derogatory. Not always a popular opinion but it feels very empowering to me. Cheyenne Randall is known for photoshopping tattoos onto iconic figures or celebrities. An interview with My Art Is Real Cheyenne says that 'tattoos are a way to show the outside world what we feel makes us who are on the inside'. You can find Cheynne's work on murals throughout Southern California! To read more about Cheyenne check out his website under Interviews & Articles and make sure to shop his store!!
Marilyn By The Sea
It was so hard to choose a piece out of Indian Giver's work. Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton were obviously at the top of my list. Ali, Goocher, and Hope were close as well. But since watching the newest Marilyn movie she has been on my mind. To be clear, I thought the movie was one of the worst I have seen and the light they showed her was really disturbing. But because of that it gave me a newfound interest in Marilyn and I have several books on my list to read to hopefully get a better understanding of a woman who was clearly misrepresented during and after life. We were inspired by the sunset colors as I think they represent California dreaming, both a place and state of mind that Cheyenne and Marilyn are apart of.
Once again we decided to go with a yarn that would be a little thicker and something that could work well for a quick Holiday gift. Squish Bulky is a tried and true FDF base. Perfect for hats, sweaters, scarfs, and blankets!!
