Leigh Martin Turns Yarn Into Realistic Mushrooms, Plants Them

Meanwhile...

 

Leigh Martin is an artist and knitter who lately has found an outlet for her passions in designing and creating fifty two different species of fungi out of yarn, and then photographing them in their “natural habitat.” She hopes that her work can offer viewers “a greater awareness of their natural surroundings, a sense of how complex every ecosystem is and greater vision for noticing and enjoying these details in their daily life.”

So lets look at some details, starting with these unassuming orange jack-0′-lantern mushrooms. And when you’re done, you should visit Bromeleighad to see all of Martin’s yarn art.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
