The Great Starry Wave by Vincenttrinidad expertly combines two of the world’s most iconic artworks into one surprisingly cohesive design. Both halves stay true to their original style (solid shapes and thin lines for the wave, and a dashed, organic look for the sky), so the joy of this piece is in seeing how the two work together. I love the way the curls of the night sky mimic the cresting wave, and the softer color scheme of Starry Night (adjusted to better suit the palette of the wave) gives the scene the feel of a chill in the air on a stormy night- no longer deadly now that the lightning has faded, but still kicking up some strong winds on the way out. The choice to have the moon and stars extend past the art’s boundaries helps give the illustration even more energy.
