Magazine Cover Mockup

My final assignment for Illustrator class--a mock magazine cover. I enjoyed doing this, because I like creating layouts and working with text; designing the logo was fun as well. Oftentimes it seems I do a lot of the work in my head, because I don't usually sketch out a lot of different ideas. I did use an image for the earth, and found some fantastic Photoshop brushes for the constellations (I wasn't really looking forward to drawing all of those by hand!) I drew the zodiac symbols and the center circles, then added a stroke of my star scatter brush at the bottom.
