This year, whilst you were wasting all your time on Netflix watching all kinds of psychopathic Kevin Spacey-related presidential dramas, other people - better people, you could say - were making rap-themed embroideries for their Etsy shops.

So for your sole benefit, we've rounded up our favourite 11 artworks of 2014, with special commendation going to portraitofsirens for managing to incorporate rap lyric, embroidery and a dinosaur into one awe-inspiring piece.
