The Adventures of Tintin - Destination Moon

I loved this book as a child, a great story with amazing illustrations. I lost count how many times I read it and who can blame me. The plot featured space, rockets, the moon, guns, bad guys and an earpiece.

I think I'll do another brainstorm before I start to narrow down my ideas.

Here's my top five ideas. I think I'm going to do the rocket as a T.

I tried this on a couple of different backgrounds and this one looked the best. I muted the black back to a dark cool grey so the black outline of the "T" could be seen. I noticed that other Tintin cover feature the authors name (Herge) with stars on either side of it. So I took this and dotted a bunch more stars randomly around.

And I also put it on a book cover.

I decided to work up one of my other concepts.

Tintin has this iconic circle.

Dogs love to howl at the moon.

So I put all that together. Firstly I hand drew this.

Then I made some small tweaks and put some colour and type with it.
