Smile for London - self initiated project

Through my research and work my theme or basis for the animation is 'Positive Propaganda' - the basic idea is influencing people's attitude in what I believe to be a positive way.
Initially I looked at the artwork used in Russian Cold War posters and WW2 British posters to see if there was anything to be inspired by ....

I started off with some really basic compositions simple shapes and a bold 'blocky' appearance mimicking some of the styles I had seen in Russian poster art.
Some more bits and pieces ....
I also experimented with making each part of an image out of separate shapes with torn edges similar to Russian and Cuban street art and posters
