Iris is Chico musician Erik Stottard’s latest fusion of hiphop and ambient chillwave. I was commissioned by Erik to design an album cover concept involving an abstract representation of the album’s name. I started by drawing a set of abstract lines in illustrator that would be the surface of the iris. Once that basic shape was complete, I brought those paths into Cinema 4D for shaping and extrusion and then finished off the rest in Photoshop.
