Kanye West (June Eighteenth Album) Cover

KW copy2

Last week Kanye West tweeted “June Eighteeth” and it is assumed that’s his *currently unnamed*album release date. Kanye will appear on Saturday Night Live later this month and presumably perform new music. Should be an interesting May and June!

Whether this is an album or not that Kanye is alluding to, I decided to do some artwork that can be used as the cover art for this project. I had nothing to go off of as far as sound or title so I just ran with the idea behind some of his style. Kanye has recently been wearing furs, hiking boots and camo; so with this cover I tried recreating a thermal imagery camera. Featured in the cover is a hand drawn original silhouette of Kanye wearing the Margiela diamond mask. Inside the silhouette is the original image of Kanye with said mask.

Lil Wayne “I Am Not A Human Being 2″ Album Packaging Concept

I am not a human being official


Alright guys…so above is the updated version of my previously posted IANAHB2 cover. Made a few things pop out a bit more, added a few small details.  I think it looks better now. But this post isn’t about the cover…it’s about what’s below this paragraph. I completed my  entire concept for PACKAGING for Wayne’s upcoming album! This is one of the best things I’ve ever done. Keep reading below and check it all out!!!



So this was my idea for the back cover. Obviously we don’t have the track list, so I just put XXXXXXX for each song as well as the lead single “My Homies Still”. But that’s besides the point. Notice the alien Wayne on mars in the background. And I tried to match the cover as far as colors, lighting, etc. go. Packaging really all needs to have unity.


This is just the first thing you see when you flip open the cover. Simple, but goes with the rest of the concept and plan. Not much to this.


So above(Click to view full quality) is the inside of the tri-fold packaging. I feel this tied together the whole project. This is the first time you see Wayne’s actual face and it’s as ‘alien’ as can be. Again it goes with the rest of the packaging. UNITY. Like the 2Chainz packaging; the CD would be in a pocket to the right of the separation line on the right of the above image, and the booklet would be on the left.


Alright and lastly is my favorite part. I really would love to see this implemented. It’s glow in the dark ink filling in the LIL WAYNE and I AM NOT A HUMAN BEING 2 text on the front cover. Like Wayne’s black light tattoos as seen in the ‘I Am Not A Human Being’ video you couldn’t see this effect in stores…but rather at night when the real martians come out to play. It’s just a fun gimmick that’s not been done before but goes along with the theme.

Big Sean “Detroit” Cover #2


Soooo I’m super hyped for Big Sean’s mixtape. He put out another teaser video today with part of the song “How It Feel” and I’ve had that on repeat all night. This is my second cover for the tape that’s due out September 5th. Boiii. I like this one alot more than my first. What do you guys think?

Big Sean “Detroit” Cover (Unofficial)


Big Sean very recently announced his new mixtape titled “Detroit”. I’m a fan of most everything Sean has dropped recently so I’m expecting BIG things out of this. And no this is not the official cover. I did email it to Sean’s manager but I didn’t get a response. I got lucky that Karen Civil actually saw my Wayne cover and showed it to him. Thanx again to her and everyone else for the feedback with that project.

Anyways with this cover I tried to represent the city with the Red Wings logo made into an original background and gave it a retro feel with the way I did the writing.

What do you think about this cover? Like it better than my D4 cover?


EXTRA- Black and White version

A$AP Mob “Lord$ Never Worry” Cover


I’ve been wanting to do a cover in this style but before now, I didn’t have the right project to try it out for. Tonight I sat down and tried this style for the first time. I really love the way it turned out even though I have a long way to go to be even considered ‘good’ at this style. Regardless this is a good first step in my eyes. What do you think?

“Lord$ Never Worry” mixtape by A$AP Mob is due out August 28th!

A$AP Rocky Wallpaper

ASAPwallpaper copy

It’s the middle of summer. I’m sitting on the couch, laptop in front of me as usual. I don’t have anything going on but I’m reading my Twitter feed, as well as some other message boards and blogs. Today in particular I didn’t do a thing. There’s just nothing going on. So I started looking at some other peoples artwork around the web, and got inspired. I wanted to do a wallpaper since I hadn’t done one in a while…and it had to feature someone I haven’t flooded this blog with. A$AP Rocky was the perfect choice, and I just happened to have a picture of him saved in my ‘Random’ pictures folder.

I don’t even know what direction I was going with this piece. I just started walking and ended up at the peak I guess you could say. Something experimental and different. Hope you enjoy it.

G.O.O.D. Music Artwork

good copy

So because Kanye West and the other G.O.O.D. people have a new compilation album coming out…I decided to put together some artwork for it! I don’t think there’s a release date for this project yet but it should be out sometime this year. Be on the lookout for it.
