Run the Jewels – Vector Experimentation

This is a quick post of me recreating the “Run the Jewels – CLOSE YOUR EYES” album cover. As I’m wanting to print it onto a shirt and I don’t want the image to be low quality so I repainted the original in Photoshop, created a vector version of Illustrator and made a custom made in Photoshop. This is another post with work related to my favourite rapper and political activist Zack De La Rocha.

The first one I just cut the background out selected the type and painted over it in another layer to create a higher definition version. The vector one I traced the lettering in Illustrator creating an infinitely scalable image. The final custom one was created using a standard black background than 2 typefaces to mimic the ones on the original: Impact and Futura Medium. These were the two closest to the ones used on the original album cover.

After that, I then placed the reverse and the original on to images of t-shirts of appropriate colours that mimic the album cover.

At some point, I will print these myself or upload it to a website like Redbubble. The only problem with this is it could get taken down as this isn’t my original work, I have put my own spin but this isn’t my IP.
