Listen to This

Illustration

Overview
Listen to This is a personal project directly inspired by the annual group project, 10x, devised by Richard Perez and Eric R. Mortensen. Following the guidelines of the group project, I reimagined album artwork for my top ten albums of 2016, keeping within a fixed color system and visual style. Album themes are expressed with whimsical digital collage and extreme type manipulation.
