You know it’s going to be a good month when Drake drops a new album and just like pretty much every other Hip Hop/R&B fan, I was very excited to listen to Drake’s new album Scorpion.
After listening to the entire album there were definitely a few songs that really stuck out to me as definite favorites that need to be on repeat. I can’t exactly say if I liked A side or B side better, but overall I really enjoyed the album.
When SZA’s album CTRL was released back in 2017, I was super inspired by the songs to make a little illustration for each and decided to carry that tradition over and do illustrations for my favorite songs off of Drake’s Scorpion album.
If I had to choose my top 5 favorite songs off the album that weren’t singles (in no particular order) they are In My Feelings, Summer Games, Finesse, Nonstop, and Don’t Matter to Me.
With that said, I was inspired to do an illustration for the first four songs that I listed and I’m excited to share them with you.
All the illustrations are first hand drawn on paper and then turned into vectors and colored using Adobe Illustrator. The one that took the longest was surprisingly the one for Finesse, because I added all the details in Illustrator versus drawing it by hand before making it digital.
My favorite is the one for In My Feelings, because it turned out exactly how I pictured it in my head with the tears and all. Also, I drew it perfectly the first time around, so I’m pretty proud of that since realistic faces are hard to draw.
The illustrations for Nonstop and Summer Games are available on my Society6 along with a bunch other artwork for sale!
Which song off of Scorpion was your favorite and which illustration did you like the best? Let me know in the comments.
Thanks for reading and stay hungry to learn, create and grow!
