I remember when E.T. came out at the theater when I was a kid. I wanted to go see it so bad I couldn’t stand it, but my parents wouldn’t take me. Instead, I had to wait the average 97 years it took movies to land on video back in the ’80s to see it.
Being an ’80s kid, I spent many a day happily playing games that look horrible by today’s standards. I also loved the flick E.T. so you can bet when the Atari 2600 game hit the markdown bin at the local K-Mart, I had to own it.
It’s kind of amazing the amount of detail that Ray Cannon is able to capture with his needle-felted designs. While I’ll probably never try this, I can appreciate the hard work that went into this. Ray makes quite a few different things with his needles, including this incredible E.T.
