This was actually a throwaway design I made next the original design. I thought their idea was pretty good but it lacked a little strength. So I thought a clear image like this would be more usefull for their merch line.
This was their original idea. It was leading up to being a tarot card. But we abandoned that idea after I send the other design.
Another idea I had was to put the two main people from the podcast in a Studio Ghibli scene, and try to mimick their faces/posture into a Studio Ghibli scene. The art style is just so loveable that I had to try it.
