Artist Description: The cover for this album is a photograph of a sculpture created to look like a a cake. Everything is perched over an album on a turntable, film reels, a tire, a clock face as well as frosting and mini figures of the band. This album has been on my wall for a while waiting for me to start it, this was a very difficult project to start and I kept putting it off. Someone commissioned it so it went into the lineup. I started by stitching a waxy geometric background in tonal threads to give the background some interest and then I attacked the cake. There are over 75 different colors of thread in this piece and over 100,000 painstakingly placed stitches in the project. The end result is amazing, the thread gives Let it bleed dimension and depth. The album title was created as a patch and collaged to the album last.
