Victoire’s Mixtape Contest

Local boutique Victoire came up with a fantastic contest idea recently. The contest called for mix tapes (well, CDs), and the winning compilation gets a $50 gift certificate. The contest ends on March 31st, but I determined my playlist a while ago. Since I had time, I decided to create some album art and practice my Photoshop painting skills in the process. I sketched my initial thumbnail, corrected perspective using the grids in Illustrator, and brought it into Photoshop to paint. Above is the result. It’s a great, nostalgic throwback for me – it’s been ages since I’ve made a mix for anyone.
