For this Rick James design I worked in primarily vector art using traditional drawing, a little Adobe Photoshop and mostly Adobe Illustrator. I tried to keep that vintage 80s look and stay true to the album while still putting out new artwork and not using the existing images from the album. It's more about reviving elements from the old art, such as lightning bolts, and his axe guitar from the album's photoshoot. I also gave a nod back to the color scheme of the original tour shirt with the yellow, red, and blue. The goal here was to create a mix of both old and new, to create something nostalgic but still fresh and fun.
