Second Star to the Right

I recently finished a commission for a client who owns a Boat Charter business in California called BOOTLEG CHARTERS. This was a great project to be a part of, as it was going to be in a very vintage style and have a touch of fantasy with a flying sailboat. I’ve been wanting to do something in this vein for a while, but never really actively pursued it. We bounced around with a few vintage styles and compositions, but after a few rough drafts and some discussion, it became clear that we wanted to pursue a “Vintage Travel Poster” style. We also went for a Peter Pan theme by utilizing a phrase from the classic story, “Second Star to the Right, and Straight on Till Morning.”

Here is a collection of some of the imagery that I used for inspiration, including Vintage Travel Posters, a Retro Disneyland Poster, and the art from The Wreck of The Zephyr.
