Neverland by Mr-Bluebird Neverland by Mr-Bluebird
First one of a series of advertisements for imaginary lands, inspired by those old travel posters. I had a lot of fun doing this even though I stayed hours and hours just to get the colors right... damn you colors!


Whimsical Journeys:
-Neverland
-Fantasia
-Hundred Acre Wood
-Land of OZ
-Wonderland

Hi there. I just absolutely love your Wonderland and Neverland adverts. I was wondering if there was any way I can purchase these? I see back in 2012 you had answered this question but I wasn't sure if that has changed since. I would love to add these to my collection! Thanks!

Oh well, I think it is great though. I want to get a collection of travel posters of fictional places. Yours is one of my favorites. I want to find on of Terry Pratchett's discworld too.

I'd say all those hours paid off, the colors are really beautiful. I love the format this is on. What is the font you used for "Neverland"? The typography is wonderful as well :) Bravo!

I really like the concept (as a pilot and history enthusiast, I tend to go ga-ga over any vintage travel posters), but I feel like one very important element is missing: the children flying. I think if you retooled it to add at least one child's silhouette soaring over the pirate ship, it would be perfect!

Don't get me wrong, I love the poster, and I can certainly appreciate the time and effort that goes into making these. I'm not hating or trying to belittle your work (I'm sure there's enough trolls out there already); I'm just offering a little [certainly uneducated and ignorant] constructive criticism--for what it's worth.

That was actually an idea I had from the get go. But as the poster evolved, I felt it started looking too cramped.
I didn't want to use just one kid flying, it had to be all of them.. so I decided to scrap that idea and go just with peter atop the mountain.. I'm not sure it was the right decision.. but it was what I felt was right at the time.

You don't have to apologise for giving me your opinion, please!
I love hearing people's insights

and I'm happy you like it so much! =)

Hey, you're welcome, and I appreciate the fact that you accept criticism--it's been my experience that a lot of people on DA tend to not like it when you nay-say their hard work.

I can understand why you didn't go with the group--it would be a little crowded with all the foreground elements. OOH! What about a "Neverland Airways" advert in the same style? Something like the old TWA or PanAm adverts that exhibited their destinations? That style might give you more to work with than just focusing on the destination. Just an idea.

Check the PanAm posters (Cuba, America, Rio) and the Eastern Airlines Miami Beach poster on this page to see what I mean: [link]

My starting point for this series was exaclty this style of posters you're talking about. Absolutely love them!
But as the series progressed, I think they started to grow apart from my original vision.. but I think that's what's always fun.. they start getting a look all of their own

I don't deal directly with printing them, so I'm not sure.
