I was recently commissioned to illustrate a fantastic project that was a little secretive as the end results was a wedding gift from a bride to be to her husband. Now that the wedding is over I can finally blog about it. The project was to illustrate three posters that visually represented three songs that were very significant to the couple. The end result was going to be three posters that they could hang in their home. The third song was Whatta Man by Salt 'N' Pepa with En Vogue.
Well this poster was a whole heap of fun to illustrate. I decided to created caricatures of Cheryl James (Salt) and Sandra Denton (Pepa) and represent their rap (that among other things describes features of their perfect man) as a series of pictorial speech bubbles. I chose a colour scheme that would scream 1994, so I looked to the intro of the television show Fresh Prince of Bel Air for a little inspiration.
