We were recently commissioned by Vibe magazine to create album art for some of the most anticipated “lost” albums of the last few decades, which included albums by Prince, The Commission (a Notorious B.I.G. side project), Lauryn Hill, and 50 Cent. This was such a fun assignment to work on, since it allowed us to do some really intensive image and typographic research while we immersed ourselves in each artist’s catalogue. Mark Shaw, the art director we worked with on the project, asked us to do a short write-up for Vibe about how we went about making the illustrations, and our inspiration for each of the final four covers. The interview is up here!
