When it came to creating this poster I started by creating the image of the earth. Originally I used the trace tool in Illustrator to create a vector image and changed the settings until I was satisfied, fortunately I learnt a lot on this in a workshop. However I decided that I would prefer to have an image that was less complex and drew my own by drawing over the traced image, discarding it and adding colour.

The rest of my poster I created using Illustrators tools.
