Most people would not look at deadly microbes and think, "hey, there's an art project here..." unless you are Alicia Watkins. The Etsy user has come out with a new line of cross-stitched pieces featuring everything from e-coli to syphilis.
The artwork surprisingly looks colorful and attractive, considering she's representing terrible diseases that can harm numerous people. The fact that Watkins decided to represent these deadly microbes in this way makes the work that much more humorous. Taking a touchy concept such as disease and turning it into works of art makes one look at the idea of these sicknesses in a different way. The most ideal outcome of these pieces will be that people will want to educate themselves on these topics, and avoid contracting them in any way in the future.
