WHITE STAR REPLICA



Illustration | Poster Design



Given the opportunity to replicate an older art piece from the 20th century, I chose my hand at a piece within the Art Nouveau movement. Alphonse Mucha is one of the major players within that movement and has inspired me to accomplish his artistic illustration skill.

I chose this piece to replicate because of the playfulness of the subject and the colors used within the artwork.

The original was completed with a lithographic procedure. I chose to make my replica with Prismacolor markers and Prismacolor coloring pencils.

When I first saw Alphonse Mucha’s work, I always wanted to try my hand at his lush-fluid style of illustration. I believe I emulated it well and focused on the major characteristics and details in his work.
