This was a project developed in an illustration class. The prompt was to create a mixtape with a unified theme and then design a cover for it. I‘ve always had an affinity for old country music so I decided to create a playlist staring some of the classic ladies of country. Dolly Parton has a song titled “False Eyelashes”, which divulges some of the woes of being a female country singer. I used that track as my inspiration. For the album’s cover, I illustrated a pug with a Dolly Parton-esque hairdo, generous eyelashes, and cigarette hanging from her lips. I chose a color palette of vintage mustards and teals to throw it back to the era of Jello casseroles and hair curlers, and created some quirky, off beat, hand-lettered type.
