In a way, Debbie Smyth is an illustrator, but in a 3Dimensional sense, using thread and yarn to stand in as drawn pen lines and marks, and the whole room as the blank page illustrations are normally drawn on. Using pins and nails to control the shape of the drawings and lines of the thread, Smyth winds normally black yarn around the already pinned out shape like a spiderweb, and manages to create very intricate and somehow organised images and illustrations in an extraordinary way.
