A poster made for a Jamaican music art contest. My entry is dedicated to the Jamaican sound system. The sound system is an important part of the Jamaican culture and history, and no sound system would be complete without huge speakers. Thus, I decided to make a collage poster, where I stacked up the spekers in a fun and unusual way.
Do you ever feel “empty”? Like there is a massive hole in your chest that nothing can fill? I sometimes do. It’s such a strange feeling, that I can’t even properly describe it in words.
So, I’ve decided to illustrate it instead.
I’ve actually used images of Superman as my “chest” reference. 😉 The void itself is painted in watercolors. The rest is pencils and some chalk pastels. I’m quite happy with the result, especially since I never really draw such portraits-usually it’s just the face.
