Aesop Rock drops Skelethon

Aesop Rock : Graham Smith
Big time Art Director, Andrew Nilsen of the SF Weekly, called with a sweet little portrait assignment to illustrate Aesop Rock for the debut of his newest album, Skelethon. If you dig serious lyrical wordplay and stinky beats, you're gonna put this album on repeat for sure.

I watched a bunch of his videos and interviews, and while listening to the hard hitting track, Zero Dark Thirty, I penciled up a few sketchy ideas for the SF Weekly to choose from. The illustration was finished in an off-register, rough and dirty, 3 color screen print style. 

Read the article online and nod your head to his video for Zero Dark Thirty!
