Tyler reached out for a new t-shirt design for his song, Bad News. It's a song about turning down a tempting relationship that isn't good for you. You can't help but to keep falling in love. It turns into trying to convince yourself that you don't want it. That's what I tried to capture in this design.
The illustration starts in the center of the rose, creating the gesture of this relationship, only to remind yourself that it's bad news—snapping out of it, and scratching out that idea.
If you'd like to take a deep dive behind the design process of this project, you can watch it over on my YouTube channel!
