Project Mercury is to be my biggest art project to date. In this project I wanted to create a story of how my Commander (the name given to players) had an idea to create a large spacecraft known as a "megaship," and to turn this ship into a massive mobile printing studio and gallery which can warp around the galaxy.

Project Mercury will take the form of a book/journal with notes and sketches, designs, posters and other bits of media. This journal, along with its text and images are all done in-character in order to create an immersive narrative.

(I will update this project as more artwork is produced, rather than make a new project per piece.)
