For the Narrative Project, we have been given an Era to focus on, ours being the Industrial Revolution (our time period: 1800-1900). While researching about the events that define the era, we began to research styles that could help in triggering ideas. While flicking through a number of art magazines, there were a variety of styles that stood out. I was drawn to the work of Sam Bosma (http://www.sbosma.com/). His work has continued to stick in my mind, so I thought it would be useful to document some examples in the form of an influence map. The illustrative style and muted colours could work well, in terms of fitting in with the period.
