Embroidery Project: Tove Jansson

I came across this beautiful illustration by Tove Jansson, author, painter and illustrator. She is perhaps best known for her Moomin characters from her books and comic strips.
I have always loved the Moomin illustrations, and in particular Tove’s unique drawing style.
I have found that her drawing style translates well in to embroidery and I have already embroidered two of her illustrations in black and white. I have decided that this particular illustration of Moomin, Thingumy and Bob and the kings ruby will be next embroidery piece.
The second image is the first embroidery I made of the Snorkmaiden and the Fillyjonk from Moominsummer Madness.
