Lil' Kanye Big Feelings
Elisha Shannon, Justin Kroehler
Elisha and Justin have never been known to be particularly good at much of anything, that is, except for story telling. In an article written by Lima News the two were described as the Harry and Lloyd of our generation. Which is why they have decided to tackle the seeming impossible task of making sense of Kanye West's mind, in a book meant for children and adults alike. Which will be sure to define category.
Lil' Kanye Big Feelings is the daring story of a bear named Lil' Kanye who uses music to unite his divided world.
We have tried writing this book in a way that would appeal to children and adults alike. However, true fans of Kanye West and the hip-hop culture will catch references that others won't.
Book cover type
We are looking for our cover to include "Lil Kanye" a youthful bear as the focal point. We love the look of Kanye West's "Dropout Bear" (attached below) but in order to refrain from infringing on their copyright you will have to submit your own rendition of it. We have added a few photos for our artists to pull inspiration from below. Dropout Bear Pro’s- Minimalistic design Round edges Eyes (Size and multicolor) Subtle Cuteness (Not obnoxious) Pops off the cover (Specifically in the 5th panel) Lack of emotion Simple background (Does not need to be solid color, example #3) Font Human nature FAN ART Pros- Creative spinoff of the dropout bear Body Proportions (Example big paws, eyes and, head) Human Nature Overall Vision We are looking for 2 versions of your cover Version 1- Your version of Lil Kanye Standing alone similar to the layout of the dropout bear cover we submitted Version 2- All 4 characters Blue Jay Named Z (Jay-Z), Wolf Named Kid (Kid Cudi), Camel named 3 (Chance The Rapper), and Lil Kanye However, we recommend submitting V1 before working on v2. That way we can let you know if you are close to the mark we are looking for. We will only give you a green light for V2 if we feel as if you have a real chance at winning, that way we don't waste anyones time! Each character should have its own individual personality, but less is more While we are not against the characters having clothes, be careful to not over do it I have included a photo of some album artwork that has a color scheme we like DO NOT submit an exact copy of the dropout bear In our opinion the design of Lil Kanye and supporting cast is what will truly set one designer apart from the other. We are also in search of an illustrator to help us illustrate this book. If we choose you we will also offer this gig to you first.
