Oh my goodness. First William Shatner, and now this? Abe Vigoda was SO my favorite curmudgeon on Barney Miller. I just wanted to hug him. Awesome work, Ms. Virbitsky!


And of course, these embroidered portraits bring to mind the amazingly talented Ms. Hart. I finally saw a few of Jenny's portraits in person last week and I almost passed out from their sheer amazingness. Keep the portrait spirit alive, peeps!
