    You could do so many things with that it's not even funny! I'm not gonna be much use on the artist front, but I can help with ideas!

    I personally love photography, so if it was me here are some things I would do:

    - Take photos of different vehicles/modes of transport with a really slow shutter speed (original, I know).
    - Take close-up photos of loads of random people's shoes while they're walking around the city. Maybe then make a video of a journey you take often (your journey to school?) where you just film your feet as you walk.
    - Go to a tube station, set up a tripod about 5 feet away from the ticket barriers and pan in so you can only see one barrier, and take photos of hundred of different people as they come through the barrier. It would be a sick series of photos.

    Hope that helped! Come back and upload images of some of your work!

    Well i'll try (is this for a design/fashion/expressive?)

    -well obviously basic forms of transport, cars, buses, ships, planes
    -try to find some weird transport or strange weird of travel and do a couple of sketches? tractors/zorbing
    -photography is a good point for transportation or any kind of vehicle
    -look at car magazines and see how they edit their cars to make it glossy and shiny, incorporate that in a painting?
    -or look at the design of cars and transport (streamlined) if ur trying to design something
    -how do people travel?
    -old fashioned transportation, carts, mules, horses,
    -bikes, scooters, skateboards
    -foreign transportation-gondalas
    -future transportation
    -look closely at the parts on an engine
    -airports for photography are good???
    -roads could even work? bridges? roundabouts?
    -travel could be compass/navigation/maps/globes
    -even people working, walking to places...like in a crowded street
    -train times (graphic designing or printing)
    -think of modern/public art and how transport works into it (like the one with half a car coming out of the road?)
    -train tracks-tram tracks-general shapes (wheel) that can be copied and interpreted

    OUTSIDE BOX
    -the journey objects take to become things, like wood into paper, crop into food in supermarket???
    -think about metaphysical travel- JOURNEYS- such as growing from a young age to mature/battling something and overcoming difficulties
    -idea of home, idea of people traveling home
    -things used to transport objects, jugs, crates, boxes
    -or think about natural transportation/travel
    -water cycle
    -air currents
    -birds/herd migration
    -rivers flowing from one place to another
    -swarms of animals traveling bees/bats/fishes
    -traveling to breeding grounds

    lol more than enough! :yes: but couldnt find any famous artists renowned for travel and transport. But there are a lot of paintings of transportation etc...just google it.
    Im here, to help, so if u want me to explain anything, just ask, hoped it helped

    are there any countries that you are interested in? maybe focus on the destination as well as the journey? that way if you go on holiday you could take pictures of beaches etc or if not local tourist attractions in the city or countryside? id imagine you could get a lot of secondary research that was as well.

    dont be silly. There are no famous artists i can think off, who are solely dedicated to painting transport? So your best hope, are photographers? Modern artist?

    Or just Google "painting of a ship" and just put that artist....

    :rolleyes:
