This week’s LEGO Ideas Feature is inspired by art deco posters from the 1920s to 1940s, which was commonly used for the fashion industry, it also made for great travel and holidaying posters, which brings us back to today’s entry, Art Deco Travel Poster by TheBricketeer!
TheBricketeer, Jas, is a good friend of mine and seeing this wonderful creation come to life was amazing. It started life as a homage to the Titanic, but thanks to licenses reasons it was rejected. That didn’t stop Jas though, he had the clever idea of rebranding it to a generic ship with ‘New York‘ as the location.
I’ve always been a huge fan of the iconic travel posters, and thought that with the various shapes, sizes and angles available it would make a great piece to display made out of LEGO. – TheBricketeer
Personally speaking, I love this art style, having dabbled in design during my college years I can appreciate the simple yet captivating shapes that make up the finished piece. Jas has done an incredible job with the LEGO slopes and angled pieces to create a ship from the represented era. From the smoke bellowing out the funnels and the masts that stand tall, to the amazing illusion of perspective with both the windows and the bow of the ship.
The title ‘New York‘ is also done in the same art deco style and entirely brick-built, well tile-built to be precise. Based on a tall and narrow font type gives allows for some nifty tile work, the ‘W‘ looks especially smart.
As a whole, myself and may other fans, would love this hung on our wall, hopefully alongside others in that style – Jas, you had better get busy!
