ABOUT THERE ONCE WERE STARS:
Peace. Love. Order. Dome. That’s the motto that the Order has given the residents of Dome 1618 to live by. Natalia Greyes is a resident of Dome 1618, a covered city protected from the deadly radiation that has poisoned the world outside for four generations. Nat never questioned the Order, until one day she sees a stranger on the outside of her dome. Now Nat wants answers. What else might her government be hiding from the good and loyal people of Dome 1618?
I’m so excited to share the mood board I created inspired by There Once Were Stars. One thing I loved about this book was the contrast between the Dome and the “Outside”. The Dome is a very orderly, efficient environment and so because of this I decided to use very stark pictures of the main characters; Jak, Natalia, and Evan. In the book, everyone has a certain amount of fear of the Outside because it’s completely unknown. Everything is mostly unexplored and so I found some images that played with the theme of the unexplored wilderness, as well as Nat’s fascination with the stars. I looked for some images that would emote a sense of bio hazardous danger but, alas there are none to be found on the internet. So I instead focused more on the scientific aspect of the story.
I hope that you guys enjoyed this mood board as much as I did creating it!
