"U.S.S. Annapolis in Ego Alley", illustration by Joe Barsin of Citizen Pride
This work was created by Joe Barsin to promote the Annapolis Film Festival's third season in Spring 2014. The work features a historical U.S. Navy ship, based on the real U.S.S. Annapolis (PG-10/IX-1), is shown on Ego Alley at City Dock. Annapolis landmarks such as the Kunte Kinte-Alex Haley Memorial, and the ever-present ducks, will be recognized by locals.
Joe was inspired by the transformation currently being experienced by the film industry with a mix of mediums, venues and viewing devices. To illustrate this concept he has referenced a time in history when sailing ships were being replaced by steam power. Today, this is known as Steampunk.
