and watch the vid. I loved the idea and the roster of artists is insane. Some really cool interpretations. I always loved the movies 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea and Mysterious Island by Jules Verne.

I created the illustration on the iPad Pro using an Adobe Draw

It was interesting for me because i wasnt sure how I wanted to approach the illustration and I got to play in a few different styles before landing on this one. Tried to show a bit of it below.
