trying to work out ways to use stitch and fabric as a drawing media

Here's an illustration I've done for Harlan Ellison's 1968 short story 'I Must Scream, and I Have No Mouth.'

In the story, a supercomputer made during the Cold War for peace switches and goes on a spiteful killing spree ridding the world of all humans except five. It's kept this group kept alive inside its 'belly' for 109 years so that it will always have a few humans left to torture.

This illustration is of a point when one of the characters, Benny, who is covered in scars from radiation poisoning, tries to escape and is made blind by the computer.

Uplifting stuff.
