I’m planning to make a few more of these in a vintage-travel-poster style and then make prints/postcards! Would anyone be interested in purchasing one when I’m done? And I’m super open to suggestions for other fantastical settings to make these of. :]
Last weekend, my piece was in the art auction at the Silver Millennium Masquerade Ball in Albany, NY. When I was coming up with my concept, I wanted to combine my two favorite things: Sailor Moon and Art Deco travel posters. I had so much fun making this.
Space Tourism/Travel Posters: Planets of our Solar System
Y'ALL. NEPTUNE IS DONE. WE MADE IT.
I am SO, SO excited about this series. It was a very ambitious project, and I poured a lot of time, love, and effort into it. It really tested my skills, and I am super proud of the results.
PLEASE LOOK AT THEM AND BE IMPRESSED.
Thank you so much for all of the replies, reblogs, likes, and asks you’ve sent me about this series over the last couple months. Your support and encouragement mean the world to me!
There are a few more posters still to come: Pluto and a couple other dwarf planets are in varying stages of progress. And I’ve gotten a handful of questions about whether I might include exoplanets or other space probes in future poster designs–I don’t have specific plans for those at this time, but I do mean to keep making posters in this style, so keep an eye out!
These illustrations are available as posters, shirts, and a couple other things in my shop. And since I’ve gotten this question: The cheapest way to own all of them is by buying stickers–they’re only a few bucks, and Redbubble discounts stickers pretty steeply when you buy several at once.
If you like this series, you’ll also like the rest of my 8bit space art! I try to post about one new piece each week, and keep a pretty steady queue space pixel art reblogged from other artists.
Some 40 light-years from Earth, a planet called TRAPPIST-1e offers a heart-stopping view: brilliant objects in a red sky, looming like larger and smaller versions of our own moon. But these are no moons. They are other Earth-sized planets in a spectacular planetary system outside our own. These seven rocky worlds huddle around their small, dim, red star, like a family around a campfire. Any of them could harbor liquid water, but the planet shown here, fourth from the TRAPPIST-1 star, is in the habitable zone, the area around the star where liquid water is most likely to be detected. This system was revealed by the TRansiting Planets and PlanetIsmals Small Telescope (TRAPPIST) and NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope. The planets are also excellent targets for NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope. Take a planet-hopping excursion through the TRAPPIST-1 system.
“Central Terminal, Buffalo, New York" (1929) - Illustration by J. Floyd Yewell for New York Central Railroad, from the collection of the Albany Institute of History and Art. 1929 was the year the art deco landmark first opened to the public.

Another travel poster, in manner of the last one i did. This time it’s of my favorite locale in Kalos, Laverre, the city of otherworldly dreams. I’ll do at least a couple more before I make prints. I’m still open to suggestions for other locations! n_n
In “Home” (S4E03) the Enterprise crew takes some time for R&R after the events of the Xindi arc and the finale of the Temporal Cold War. Trip and T’Pol take advantage of that time to visit T’Pol’s family on Vulcan. So take some time and plan a vacation to visit Vulcan yourself!
