The Ask


Lil Xan is an American rapper, singer, and songwriter from Redlands California. He is most known for his song "Betrayed," which was certified platinum by the RIAA and peaked at #64 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Using the painting provided, create an eye-catching cover art that serves as a strong visual representation for the song "Wrong Way" by Lil Xan featuring Kidd Keo. 

What I Made

The Why


Since there was a main artistic element provided for the cover art, my biggest goal with putting the cover together was making sure the text was simplistic, balanced, and didn't distract from the main painting. I made the text big enough to read and effectively fill space, but also put the text slightly behind the heart to create a sense depth and layering.
