Band of Gypsies was one of the many live Jimi Hendrix albums that was released during his short but prolific career. The album features a psychedelic photograph of Jimi over a black background. I truly wanted him to stand out over the stark background so I decided to embroider him using hand dyed yarn. I chose about 15 colors of the yarn, with many of the yarns being multi-colored. I then hand traced the contours of Jimi and his guitar and stitched away. the end result is Jimi in glorious psychedelic yarn.
