Design Inspiration

For this design I wanted to incorporate aspects of Belfast’s most iconic landmarks. Naturally, the Titanic sprung to mind. It’s importance to the city historically and it’s industrial appearance drew me to researching earlier images for inspiration. When I stumbled upon the blueprints for the ship, I felt that I could represent them in a more intriguing manner. In the past year, I have grown a love for line work in my art and believed that I could use this passion to represent the plans for the Titanic. I wanted to evoke Elmer’s aesthetic by using different shades of blue squares throughout the piece, as though the character itself was taking on the persona of a massive part of Belfast’s history. The design is chopped and changed for a more interesting overall appearance.
