Hi guys,
this is my first ever post here on TheRPF, and I hope I don't mess this up.

I've been following threads on this forum for a long time now, cause I share with you the same passion for all prop-related things, but since I am just a Graphic Designer and not a maker of any sort, I never found a reason to start a thread.

But today I embarked on a journey with my passion for all things space-related (especially the Apollo Era).

I decided to remake the famous Apollo 11 Flight Chart poster, following the original one and mixing with my own style.
Someone did a "remaster" of the original some time ago, it was a tremendous work nonetheless, that's just not what I liked myself.

So I'm remaking it by hand, retracing in Illustrator (everything will be vector) every single line, every single icon, retyping every single number or line of text.

and I told to myself that maybe someone here share my same passion and will appreciate my work, so why not give it a try.

I hope this is the right forum to post this is.

I will share with you every step possible of this free-time project of mine.

Godspeed.


UPDATE #1

- started by tracing the Earth and every single line of coast and island;
- traced all the trajectory lines (straight lines, dotted lines, red arrows etc.);
- started writing all of the 135 numbered labels.
