This children's book illustration was inspired from the song Robot by Seotaiji. Basically he's in a dark place as he calls it pain., and reminisces way back when his mom used to measure his height but she's not there anymore and feels as if the world stopped moving ever since. It's pretty depressing but it has its happy moments.
I chose to design a music CD cover for one of my favorite bands. The Plans original cover was ugly compared to the other covers so this was a perfect opportunity for me to make a better design that suits their music. I had a lot of fun painting the dude and the telephone booth but the clouds were my biggest challenge. I had references but making soft textures were unfamiliar to me. At the end it all worked out. Thank the lawd!
Just to make things a bit more clear if you don't know what's going on yet, my cover is suppose to narrate a story. Basically, the small dude and the girl (yes, she's a girl) had just ended their relationship. To explain it in a surrealistic way, the girl's tears are creating the rain. Yep.
