Today is the launch of Captain’s Log. This podcast is created in Austin, Texas by Thomas Ben White and Stefan Gill is The Captain. I was lucky to get to design the cover art. My inspiration came from my trip to Chicago and also from Fritz Lang art deco movie posters. My first sketch made the rocket look like the Tribune Tower with wings tacked on so I edited out some of the details, made the top more pointy, and was more pleased with the results. While in Chicago, we took the art deco architecture walking tour. I highly recommend it. I took lots of pictures knowing they would come in handy some day. They were great inspiration when this project came along.
These were my main sources of inspiration. The Tribune Tower, Fritz Lang "Metropolis", and this art deco piece I saw on the Chicago Art Deco Architecture tour. That and the boat tour were great.

Wow, I love that even turnstiles, mailboxes, and elevator doors were created to be beautiful
I am an artist who specializes in watercolors. I also love to travel and find inspiration in those special places and with the interesting people I meet along the way.
