"Because The Internet" (For Childish Gambino) - Illustration by Sam Spratt
After illustrating Donald Glover’s Royalty series, he hit me up again to create the poster for his new album “Because The Internet”. The artwork ties directly into the narrative of his album and its screenplay (which are incredible — seriously, look and listen to this, it’s beautiful and crazy) — and while I was mostly given free reign, he handled all art direction personally.
I won’t be sellingthe poster personally, but you can get them at the mansion parties he’s throwing — more in the near future.
Tentatively entitled Atlanta, the comedy is set against the backdrop of the Atlanta music scene.
This seems like the best of both worlds for Glover and could be very good (or horrible - depending on how you feel about Chidlish Gambino). Deadline states that Glover was attracted to FX because of the freedom he’d be given to pursue his music and tour.
I’m just glad Glover isn’t abandoning comedy completely.
