Make your own Bayeux tapestry

I have found a new game. Making Bayeux tapestry drawings. This is my first attempt.

I feel I have to direct you to the My Modern Met site, as they brought it to my attention, and have gone to the trouble of writing an intelligent article about it. Although they don’t mention that it is the work of English embroiderers, and isn’t a tapestry at all.

But you can just go to the drawing gizmo itself.

There are two fonts to choose from, and a range of characters, buildings and beasts to fill up your picture. The window on the left of the screen has a menu along the top to select a group of pictures you can add. Move through the menu by clicking on the words in the horizontal list at the top of the window, then click to add whatever you need to the picture. Don’t forget to scroll down to the tools. There are some brushes that add crowds, with spacing varied by the speed you move your mouse.  You can then adjust the individual elements to fit whatever you need.

Hours of fun.
