RIO 2222 A.D. - A new retro-futuristic graphic novel I'm thinking of starting. Made only for Steemit. Suggestions are welcome!

Steemit has renewed my drive to create. I've always wanted to create stories, but never found an appropriate platform like this one. So, I've decided to start a graphic novel called Rio 2222 A.D. It will be a retro-futuristic satirical tale. Instead of waiting to have a complete product, I want to share the process of creating it here and see how it goes. The image above is an idea I had for a title page. I want a warm-toned tropical sunset feel to it with a slight tinge of "saudade" the Brazilian emotion of nostalgic home-sickness. It is set in a post-peak-oil-bureau-techno-centric-anarcho-plutocratic-eutopic-distopia.

More details to come. The more interest that is sparked here by you all, the more motivated I'll be to do more.

What do guys think? Suggestions are welcome!

This sounds like it could be really cool. I dig the style of this title page for sure and can picture a lot more. Maybe if you think it's a bit different, you'll consider using the #weirdwednesday tag for some of the posts. I'm trying to gather creators with a unique style together to get that tag going. Followed you to see what develops!

Thanks. I'll be sure to use the new tag.

Sounds like a good idea. Go for it!
