Kiss Cam – Introduction to Illustration

The very first piece I created using Adobe Illustrator, playing with shapes to create a lyric poster.

Kiss Cam – Arkells

This campfire won’t last forever…
The Hip have only wrote so many songs.
And we can sort of harmonize together –
You hold my hand, as you try to hold on.

We can’t stay up north for the summer –
Head back to the city and find a job.
I know my family loves you like their daughter
But I know you feel like I strung you along

At a time you were kissing me,
The camera found chemistry; cheering for us in cheap seats.
Driving home I can see you stare at me differently.
We’re stuck in the nosebleeds baby.

True love never needed luxury.
Our love never needed any pretty scenery.
We embraced the summer heat,
And those walks that took forever through suburban streets.

If you want to leave me…

True love is always complicated.
Your friends never liked me much at all.
There’d be times that I’d come home almost crying,
But she never knew it was always my fault.

The very first illustration I created in my “Introduction to Illustration” at OCAD University, “Kiss Cam” is named after a song title that has a personal significance to myself and my partner. This “infoposter” is composed of only shapes, lines, and different brushes.

This is not the final version of this illustration.
