      NAS’ ILLMATIC ALBUM

      For the 20th anniversary of Nas’ debut album Illmatic, Myspace hired me to paint the iconic cover with little Nas rising out of his childhood home of Queensbridge, NYC. If you like, there are more process pics on my site.

      Pretty fun to get to do this! Reminded me of those high-school days, although I was more of a Wu-Tang, Ice Cube and Public Enemy fan. I miss that music!

      One of the best parts of Columbus, GA was exploring parking lot rooftops with @jamielawson & @nounverb #creativesouth14 #cs14 .

      Already missing the Georgia sun. Awesome @hensethename mural in Columbus with @jamielawson. #mural #streetart #hense #cs14 #creativesouth14 #latergram

      Soaking up the last rays of Georgia sun at the Iron Bank before heading back up to Canada. #creativesouth14 #cs14 #lettering #typography #vintage

      Lovely dorks at @CreativeSouthGA #creativesouth14 #cs14 @FrazDav @beeteeth @utesch me @jamielawson @marykatemcdevitt @nathanyoder. Had such a good time in Georgia with you guys.

      BEAUTIFUL DAY/ Book Cover Art

      It was a good day getting this in the mail! My illustrated cover for Beautiful Day published by Penguin Books (UK) & written by Kate Anthony. I’ve never had my lettering embossed in fancy gold. What a treat! If you like, I have a whole bunch of process shots on my site, jacquioakley.com.

      Thanks,

      Jacqui
