Izabela Kaczmarek-Szurek is a Polish-born graphic designer whose work ranges from poster art to illustration to textile design. However, it's her knitting illustration (we think she may have invented this) project entitled 'Extreme Knitting Calendar' that has us making faces of awe at each other.
Let us explain. It's a calendar with each month featuring a celebrity's face illustrated to make it look like it's been knitted. Plus, each portrait is placed on an article of clothing ie. a sweater with David Bowie's
faux-knitted head on it or a balaclava with Sylvester Stallone's
mug on the front. The project won Szurek 3rd place in GRAFFEX, an apparently well known Polish graphic design comp. We don't know what came in 2nd or 1st but if we were judging, Extreme Knitting Calendar would have won the shit out of it.
Once again we must give thanks to the internet for blessing us with this piece of pure awesomeness.
