102nd TITANIC Anniversary by TitanicGal1912 102nd TITANIC Anniversary by TitanicGal1912

To commemorate the 102nd anniversary of the sinking of the RMS TITANIC, I decided to draw the moment when I first discovered about the tragic event that happened so many years ago. 

I was in the third grade in 2000. I was walking around in the library of my elementary school when I came across a book called “Polar the Titanic Bear”. Something about the book struck a chord in me about a little boy and his stuffed toy polar bear and their trip on the TITANIC. I wanted to know more about this ship and the people onboard and what happened to them. From there, I would read every TITANIC book I could find. 

The stories about TITANIC has touched my life and in some way has touched yours as well. It’s what inspired me to be an artist and to be a little historian about this famous liner. The passion still grows in me and will continue to do so for years to come.

1912-2014

To all the passengers and crew, may you all rest in peace.

Wow! I know that book! I still remember borrowing it from the library. First time I really felt sad after reading a book.
