Designs by Kevin Brackley
“Ancient” to me means weathered and worn, so I wanted to represent this through texturing to create a distressed feel to the designs. I focused on juxtaposing elements of the old with more modern pieces for a more contemporary representation. The designs allude to the stormy seas sailors of old would have to navigate with compasses. I also depicted an old, weather-worn mariner who has endured a lifetime on the oceans. It was a challenge working with the prescribed colours, but they do give a worn feel to the designs.
