WYOB: Rush

'Write Your Own Brief' project for college-- we basically get to do whatever the hell we want!
I'm going to create a series of 8 canvas paintings of band caricatures (..and recreate album covers in my own style? Debating this...), the picture included is just a digital mock-up to see what it should look like. It's going to be a lot of work so hopefully it turns out good in the end!

ABNS poster main illustration

Imaginative Conceptual Illustration project based on Johnny Cash lyrics;

And I said, "My name is Sue!
How do you do!
Now you're gonna die!"
Well, I hit him right between the eyes [...]

A Boy Named Sue tells the story of a boy who was named Sue by his father, who left while Sue was still a toddler. Sue grew up miserable and angry at his father because his name meant he was the butt of jokes and was bullied occasionally. Many years later, when Sue was a grown adult, he happened to come across his father in a bar. They eventually end up fighting and before Sue has a chance to kill his father, he is told the reason he was named Sue was so he would grow up tough and thick-skinned.
