Thumbnail sketches

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.

Refined sketches

I tried a few different lettering options for their names in the centre.

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.
