INSPIRATION - In preparation for this project, I spent some time researching Ocean’s music and tried to learn more about who he is as an artist. I listened to the Spotify podcast “Dissect” which I gave me a lot of deep insight into his music and lyrics.
Despite all the imagery and depth I found in his music I decided to keep the piece simple, and use a minimalist rotoscope design. For one of the versions I used Frank Ocean’s “Boys Don’t Cry” magazine cover as his shirt graphic for a busier look.
I fiddled around with a lot of different ideas but this is what I settled on. I’m using this design as a poster but will also as a stencil to spray paint it onto canvas.
