Rox Chast: Cartoonist and Embroiderer

For the second time in a month, I’ve come across a magazine cover with an embroidered image. The latest (June 1, 2020) issue of The New Yorker has am embroidered by long-time cartoonist Roz Chast. The piece includes chain stitch, satin stitch, back stitch and French knots.

In a short interview published online, Chast says she was taught to embroider in the sixth grade at her public school in Brooklyn.
