I’ve been meaning to illustrate in a format other than the standard square or rectangle. The circle felt perfect since it’s representative of the kaleidoscope viewfinder and it’s the shape of a vinyl record so there’s an added tie to the music theme. I gave each band member a plethora of colours scattered with geometric shapes and a prism for the kaleidoscope effect. Also in the mix are corresponding music instruments!
The most fun and challenging part was fitting the funky shapes and instruments into the prism while looking like a kaleidoscope and not overshadowing the band members. I practically lived in a kaleidoscope for a week rearranging and tweaking the opacity, tilt and size of each shape. It was certainly a labour of love! Now, back to fondly waiting for their third album…
