Empty Pockets

A creative agency contacted me to illustrate a local artist's album cover. Three objectives needed to be met;

  1. It needed to look similar to Green Day's famous album - Dookie (see here).
  2. The artwork needed to have Jersey Shore themes throughout. 
  3. Trashy. His only direction was a garbage truck dumping Jersey Shore related images on the ground. 

I'm not really sure what that last one was about, but being from the Jersey shore myself, I wasn't too keen about that idea. Unfortunately, being the main point of only three requests, trashy needed to happen. I had fun with this one. Using a Where's Waldo-esque approach, I was able to include a lot of cheeky imagery amongst a cluster of action.
