I was contacted by the Soul Rebels to make tour posters for their East and West Coast legs of the their tour with Talib Kweli. The goal here was to retain a brand while changing the aesthetic up for the different coastal audiences.
Working with the band and management directly, this photo illustration was created using found artwork and photography. The goal was to give a whimsical sense to the atmosphere similar to what a common conception of heaven might be. This was announced through Brooklyn Vegan and can be seen here .
Live For Live Music / Stratosphere All Stars
This illustration was just one of a series of sizes done for Live for Live Music to promote the overall tour and individual dates. The timeline for this was two days of working time.
White Teeth – This cover takes an interestingly cropped visual, takes a graphic approach to add interest, and tackles a dichotomous subject matter that presents itself within the book. At first glance it is a very literal handling of the title of the book, but at later inspection it is revealed that the condition of the teeth runs parallel with the juxtaposition between serene teeth of the well off and the troubles of the socioeconomically disadvantaged.
Siddhartha – The largest contributing factor to this piece is the contextual position of the novel itself. I wanted to portray it with a great level of visual interest while not falling into the cliché of Buddhist minimalisms or a visual representation of a Buddha or Siddhartha himself. That being said the clean minimalistic expression is conveyed within the simplicity and carefully considered layout decisions.
