Exclaim! Magazine - Illustration of Alvvays Band

I was contacted by Exclaim! Magazine to illustrate the band Alvvays for the September 2017 issue. Exclaim! is a Canadian music and entertainment magazine that is distributed nationally. When approaching how I wanted to represent this band and their music visually, luckily I was already very familiar with this band so I had an idea of a direction to take.

This is a dream pop / shoe gaze band, so I made sure to have some visual reverb: stripes and dots and shapes that repeat each other. Vivid colours were used, not only to print better on newsprint, but also to communicate their sweet bright sound.
