This was a commissioned Lettering piece with the end result becoming an 18"×24" poster. The poster was intended to appeal to a wide variety of audiences. For this case, “Dope” was intended as an adjective to mean very good. The poster was meant to bring people an easy mind; something that they could look at, get refreshed, and reach a chill mindset.
For the poster, the imagery was chosen to enhance the Lettering. The color of the Lettering piece was chosen based on the color palette of the image.
