Space tourism is still a long ways off, but it’s not hard to imagine that someday, tourists will visit the natural geological landmarks of other worlds much like they tour the Grand Canyon, Mount Everest or Ayers Rock. Each of these great tourist destinations needs a classic retro travel poster to entice visitors. Until the day people settle off world and make their own destinations many of these may be the places that people will want to travel too.
I hope that these posters can inspire people to think beyond our world to the limitless possibilities of the Universe.
Poster 1 of a 30+ series of Travel Posters depicting landmarks in the Solar System. Print available in my Etsy Store.
This piece is a fantasy depiction of Olympus Mons on Mars. Olympus Mons (Latin for Mount Olympus) is a large volcanic mountain on the planet Mars. At a height of nearly 22 km (14 mi), it is one of the tallest known mountains in the Solar System, almost three times as tall as Mount Everest. Olympus Mons is the youngest of the large volcanoes on Mars, having formed during Mars's Amazonian Period.
This is a Interpretive look at Olympus Mons, emphasizing the size and height and the power it represents. I wanted a fantasy depiction that shows the Mountain as though the sun had just set and the sides were still glowing from the light. Despite being a dormant/dead volcano I wanted to depict it as though it was active. The circles represent craters and the line throughout the centre being the lava tube. The bottom of the Volcano depicts the massive cliffs that encircle nearly half of Olympus Mons as well as emphasize the size of the volcano as though compared to other mountains.
