Style Inspiration : Jules Verne, steampunk, Nantes’ Machines de l’Ile, Alphonse Mucha

Guest Book Inspiration : Tree (guests write their names on the leaves), pile of books (guests write their names on the covers)

Thumbnails

I started by sketching a few different options: luxurious vegetation, old cogs, fishes and diving suit, strange machine, planets. Chloe really liked the idea of the old cogs.

Watercolour test

I painted some old cogs in watercolor and arranged them on a page to get an idea of what the final poster would look like. chloe-antoine-guest-list-test-01_72dpi
