These are a few selected illustrations from a book I had created via Blurb.com. I chose to interpret lyrics from “Children’s Story”, a single from Slick Rick’s “The Great Adventures of Slick Rick”. The fanatic value I have for rap is pretty subject to golden age hip hop. Bob James' baseline played a huge part in the stylization of the book. Rick’s playful lyrics encouraged me to animate expression through line. Check out the rest of the book on Blurb.com under “The Great Adventures of Slick Rick”.
