The 21 pirates team is always looking for new ways to work closely with companies and schools to bring new opportunities to creative individuals' and communities to help get their talent recognised. by decorating fish scales based on the theme

of Film, Comics and Video-Game crossover Art.


Each fish scale is made out of MDF and decorated using different medias like paint, pens, charcoal etc then attached to the final ship once completed and displayed at the event.


This work has been created by Sandwell College students studying in their Second Year of the BTEC Art and Design Extended Diploma, Level 3. They really embraced researching and producing creative work in response to the21pirates creative brief. Being a part of an external project gave them the opportunity to gain real-world experience; meeting professional artists, working to a live brief and learning more about the Creative Industries, all great preparation for going on to either further studies at University in September or into the workplace. It's a brilliant platform to be able to showcase their creative ideas and we hope you enjoy looking at all their designs as much as they enjoyed creating them.

I have used Pac Man and Mario, which are two very popular video games from the 1980’s. I got to experiment with 3D design for this piece which I haven't done very often, I’m combining it with acrylic paint so it will be mixed media which I always find it fun to work with. I got my inspiration from looking at old games such as Legend of Zelda, Kirby and Sonic the Hedgehog. I really enjoyed the decision making of what I was going to combine TV shows.
