     Goat’s Head Soup was a challenging project. The album cover features a photograph of Mick Jagger with organza draped over his face. Because of this his image is out of focus and obscured by the fabric. I wanted to represent the album as closely as possible so I started by stitching the details of his face and eyes in loose wool thread. I also embroidered part of the colors of the fabric and shadows that the fabric would create over his face. Then as the final touch I used actual folded organza over the album and tacked it in place. This is the only album in the series that is draped in fabric.
