VENEM IS DEAD
In 2016 Venem decided to drop the stage name and run with his own, Jakarri. For this he wanted us to play off the Venom comic book character and the iconic scene within Spiderman. The cover was illustrated in a very similar way to the comic books to be instantly recognisable and finished with an actual comic book feel, using textures, stickers and logo/name placements. Includes a motion cover version.
With this mixtape artwork, Venem wanted to become a fallen angel with other angels visible over the sky of Richmond, Va. He sent over some reference pictures of him and also some rough sketches to show his idea and we went from there.
In this mixtape artwork Venem required a typographic illustration. Each letter was placed in one by one.
