”’I have lived with you for forty years,’ Ida said to her husband. ‘I have loved you, and I would rather die with you than live without you.’ He had always been sure of her love, but never more than at that moment.”
-A Titanic Love Story by June Hall McCash
It’s a day late, but here is my drawing tribute to commemorate and remember the lives that were lost on the RMS TITANIC 104 years ago. I just finished reading a book about Ida and Isidor Straus and was not only was I captivated of their love story but their entire life. So I felt it was appropriate to draw their last moments together for this day.
For those who are wondering if I’m going to start on my animated shorts about the people on board the Titanic, the answer is yes! With moving to a new city and starting a job in my field this past year, my personal project took a back seat for a while. But I’m determined to start and create some animation that will honor and reflect on the different accounts from the passengers and crew who were aboard that fateful liner.
