The Weeknd Trilogy Cover Art

Mr. Abel Tesfaye AKA “The Weeknd” is undoubtedly an artist about to really break out in the near future. He just signed his first record deal with Universal Records, and he stays associated with Drake and the OVO crew. After all, he is the XO in OVOXO. His 3 super successful mix tapes released in 2011 will beĀ re-releasedĀ as a trilogy in November. As usual when something is announced; I do some cover art. Personally I’m extremely excited for the re-release which will feature new songs. The Weeknd is going to be a major name in music in the years to come. He’s seriously great.

Specifics about my cover art: I used camo because he’s often seen wearing it, and I had to use colors that have not been used in the previous mix tape covers. I created the camo background myself. If you look closely the camo is made up of “XO’s”. Also the actually picture of The Weeknd I drew on Illustrator using my tablet, but the idea was taken from the poster for his tour with Florence and The Machine.

Look out for my complete packaging idea for the “Trilogy” soon!

    • Hmm. I would but I personally love the originals and don’t want to mess with them.
