A recent assignment came my way, about how 'hate music' is a growing industry. Wade Michael Page was an avid musician and racist, using music to express and spread his idealogy. While it was noted in the article that the groups are smaller, there are more members and they are more dispersed-with Music is one of the ties that bind.
I wanted to express the hatred, so chose a limited palette of red and black, keeping the illustration loose and raw.The art director was terrific, suggesting I take two separate ideas and merge them. Really enjoyed this collaboration!
