“GUERRILLA YARN” a comic about a city over run by gang warfare, however, these gangs are a little different. They are yarn bombers, covering urban scenes in knitwear and tagging not with spray paint, but with yarn logos. the blue team is the KILLER PEARLS, and the red is the KNIT CLIQUE. This comic won’t be out for a while, but I’ll be posting some pieces every once in a while.
Yarn bombing, yarnbombing, yarn storming, guerrilla knitting, kniffiti, urban knitting or graffiti knitting is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk.
Tools for Wools was installed for the first time today! It’s not finished yet (I still have to sew 11 more pieces to it and the app needs some improvements), but nonetheless I had the great pleasure to present it at the summer party at a neighbourhood centre in the 22nd district of Vienna. There was much interest from the young as well as the old. And I’m happy to report that the touch and see exploration of the prototype caused many happy smiley faces :)
