J’You – Satellites Cover Art
I recently created cover art for emerging hip hop artist J’You and his upcoming project, SATELLITES.
Beyond being inspired by the creative music + powerful lyrics, the design represents the feeling of being alone after a bad breakup.
Sometimes we go round + round in circles and you just can’t stop, even if you want to. Life keeps moving no matter what, and it pulls us right along with it. I chose to show the satellite floating along its course through space at a small scale, aiming to create a cold feeling of distance, and a sense of quiet loneliness. The satellite is surrounded by colorful star trails, each star representing someone’s journey through relationships both good + bad, each one of them being on its own unique path, as they move along this crazy thing called life together.
