Drake “Started From The Bottom” Cover

Well finally the Drake drought is close to ending. He’s been recording his new album ever since Take Care dropped back in November of 2011…and just in the past couple days he has begun recording a music video for the yet to be released single “Started From The Bottom”. Now that this song title has been confirmed I went ahead and made a cover for it. I used a picture from Ruben Rivera’s post on the official OVO blog. Below is a picture from the video shoot!

House Of Balloons/Thursday/Echoes of Silence Covers

Let me just say, I’ve always wanted to do this…but I love the original covers SO MUCH that I’ve not really ever bothered to mess with the greatness(Shoutout to Ben Swantek!). Since ‘Trilogy’ dropped yesterday, I figured I may as well do these. If you haven’t went out and bought ‘Trilogy’ yet…do so this weekend…no pun intended!

VALERIE Poster

(11/7/12) Happy Thursday…Just something I had an idea for. Inspired By…

UPDATE(11/8/12)-

Soooo I deleted the old version of this from yesterday and I added the new version. This time you see the poster three times on top of one another. The colors come from the “Thursday” cover. The whole concept of Valerie the character really intrigues me. I tried to capture the emotion and still have the contrast between the darkness and perceived happiness as seen in the above video(Also seen in ‘The Zone’ video).

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 be re-released 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!

Club Paradise Tour Poster

cptourposter copy

I’m a little late on this, as Drake has just finished the North American part of his tour…but he’s just about to start the European part. I wanted to bring it back to the Pre-Take Care era and base this poster off my (still) popular ‘Club Paradise’ song cover.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend any shows on this tour because he didn’t come to Charlotte. I’ll catch him as soon as he rolls through Crown Town for sure! Who’s going with me?

The Weeknd Wallpaper

I had to re-download The Weeknd’s first album “House of Balloons” today because my computer thought it was cool to delete some music. Oh well…made me listen to the first time in a few weeks and make a dope wallpaper. It’s pretty much a fantastic album. If you have never heard of or listen to The Weeknd, start now. Download ‘House of Balloons’ and ‘Thursday’ for free! He’s featured on Drake’s new album “Take Care” which drops tomorrow in America! Go buy it!
