Default Digitizers: Do you ever digitize anything just for fun?

Do you ever digitize anything just because you would like to? Do you have embroidered items that you have done around your home or office just because you wanted them? Framed pieces maybe or tablecloths or pillows or whatever? Is digitizing and embroidery a visible part of your life or is it just the career or job you do?

A lot of times I'll see something and try to replicate it. Everywhere I go I'm looking at people's embroidery to get ideas and to see how I rank. I only embroider what I need for business or our gifts for the most part. When I'm having problems I'll embroider something just for a test but that's about it. My kids are lucky to have embroidered book bags. When I'm feeling naughty I'll digitize the nike swoosh, but then the guilt takes over and I delete it. ;-)

No Nike lawyers, I'm just making a funny.

I am not a digitizer atleast commercially but I can digitize with the best of them. Being the production manager I am more involved with screen printing art and other basic business responsibilities but when I get time I love to sit down and hone my skills. I like trying to digitize things that need texture like birds and animals, something a simple flat step satin fill does not do justice. I have a lot of articles i have experimented on especially with puff. It is fun.

That is Great! Without schools to teach this is a perfect way to experiment and learn. Personally I would never hire a digitizer who did NOT do what you just outlined.

AH, but you did not answer the question of the thread.... do you digitize just for fun? for your own life? For example look at this image... see the 1 dollar bill inserted in lower right of face for a sense of scale. 13 pcs but all done on a small machine and just framed separately to give the scale.

I like to emulate cool stuff I see in movies or lego star wars/indiana jones things for my kids. I'm working on the Serenity firefly ship logo but haven't finished it yet. Blue Sun took no time at all. I did the 20th century motor company on a hat for myself which was out of the 2nd atlas shrugged movie. When I get some real time to spend I'm going to do some scrapbook covers for the wife in the Roy Lichtenstein pop art style.

Have you read the book? (Atlas Shrugged) I have done a series of famous buildings in embroidery and a couple of them are imaginary from one of Rand's other books, The Fountainhead... So I have a 5 foot tall Chrysler Building and then also my mind's view of one of Howard Roark's buildings also 5ft tall...

I bet the pop art would be awesome... tiring though if you do it in dots.. yikes.

I have wanted to do some mosaics in thread of pics I took in Rome... but haven't the patience anymore to do all those small squares. lol
