Design Inspiration

I have been working with my students on Dazzle Art and Optical Illusions on a smaller Leveret Hare. Dazzle Art was used to confuse enemy ships during world war 1 and was inspired by the markings on zebras. Dazzle Ships have a Hampshire connection through Southampton and Portsmouth ports I thought it would be fun to apply this art of camouflage with a local connection to the Hare who is always on the run from hunters but I have added curvy Celtic twists to the lines as the Hare featured in many Celtic designs.
