PROJECT: EL REY DEL MAMBO ILLUSTRATION DESIGN
CLIENT: BASSTARD DJ
Parallely to his entrance in the electro-latin music scene in Bristol, Basstard Dj asked me to make a design for his personal artist brand. A mexican skull in an new school tattoo design style is chosen to represent the new voice of the artist. We focused on the character of “The Diablito”, who appears in most of the “Día de Muertos” mexican tradition. The skull illustration is accompanied by maracas alluding to the concept of latin music plus floral traditional decoration
The design has been thought to be applied in different real products as merchandise and printed advertising.
