The perimeters for this design were to find a local magazine article and Illustrate a two-page spread. I came across an article praising Tennessee composers and wanted to express their love for their state. The article mentioned a string quartet so I brought those instruments into my design. The original pieces were traditionally painted with acrylic on illustration board, scanned, and then digitally enhanced and edited in Photoshop. My intention for these artworks was to express joy through the character’s faces, poses, and the typography.
