Illustrating a Song

This is another 2 star assignment that finishes my week with 16.5 stars! I had to make a design representing a song without writing any words.

I made this using Pixlr.com to represent one of my favorite songs, Cosmic Love by Florence and the Machine. This is actually three stock images lined up against each other in separate layers. I cut them out to fit together in this way using the cutout tool. It was really tricky trying to cut them all out nicely to fit this way.

This song is very ethereal and beautiful. It compares lots of aspects of love to parts of space. I thought these images would make a cute cover photo for the song. I love how the lighting on the two hands work with the firework heart in the middle. This felt almost more like a visual assignment than a design one, but I think I’m getting better at photo editing and designing.
