This project started as an illustration for a magazine article (in A New Type of Imprint) about
inspiration and the universe. I wanted to create something simple, inspiring and visually pleasing.
After exploring several ideas and techniques, I discovered that the textures and patterns on the 
planets (as seen from earth) greatly resembles marbled paper. 
 
I had recently attended a workshop on this technique, and was finally able to make use of it.
After photographing my marblings, I edited them in Photoshop to look like fantasy planets.
As I really enjoyed working on this illustration, I decided to also make a poster series of the
planets in our solar system.
