Artist Peter Crawley studied and continues to work in the field of Product Design.  He is perhaps best known for his stitched illustrations which he creates by hand-piercing various stocks of paper with a pin and then stitching the paper with a needle and cotton thread.  His first stitching work was inspired by a road trip he took across America, and his latest is based on Joy Division’s 1980 song “Love Will Tear Us Apart”.  The piece measures 420mm x 594mm and was made using a sheet of GF Smith Colorplan paper and white thread.  Each horizontal line represents one minute of audio.  To see more of Peter’s work be sure to visit his site at
