The initial happenings of the boombox illustration sprang from the enthusiasm to prepare a surprise candlelit dinner. The love interest of this project is a music business major with an interest toward old school boomboxes. I was inspired to incorporate that passion into an 11in x 17in invitation for a night full of laughter, wine, a homemade pasta dish, and, of course, music!
Keeping point to capture the liveliness of character of the individual the illustration was produced for, the illustration was a success, as well as the prepared dinner that followed.
Much later, and now presented to you, I decided to bring back out the boombox illustration to revamp it by adding sneakers, a hat, and a color scheme that adds a whole new attitude.
