Nique - Framed & Unfocused

Here is an album cover illustrated by fellow VCU-alumni Richie Pope, a Richmond-based illustrator influenced by "Expressionism, comic books, politics, hip-hop and music in general". Nevada-based rapper Nique sent several reference shots which Richie drew from, cut apart and gessoed together. He made several posts following the progress of this piece on his blog. Also of interest is a series of black and white painted portraits of Rolling Stones 100 Greatest Singers he is currently working on. Lost At E Minor recently interviewed him about his work.

The cover is for Nique's mixtape which is being released later this month. The cover is meant to show that he is framed You can hear samples of his music on his MySpace page.
