Kanye West Alternative Album Cover

I took on this project as a bit of a personal assignment. When I was learning the basics of vector design on an old Apple eMac with Illustrator CS2 I remade this bear which was featured in Kanye Wests album promotion for his album 808’s and Heartbreak. I made this illustration entirely from vectors, and I have refreshed it specially for republishing here on my website. (When I was first learning to use the pen tool, my edges weren’t so brilliant and sharp!)

I also changed the background colour to Pantone 121-2C, as I find it more refreshing than the blue I used in my design work years ago.


My preliminary sketches of how I’d make up the bear with layers of vector shapes.
