“Logic - Under Pressure” - Deluxe Album Cover illustration for Def Jam by Sam Spratt
For the Deluxe cover, we wanted to make something entirely different from the standard album cover but still tackle part of Logic’s narrative — in this case it’s less literal history, and more representative of his art, music, and where it comes from. This fictional city scene in a Maryland warehouse district was so fun to create — painting layer by layer — the bricks, coats of paint on top of them, graffiti, metal accents with reflected light, distress, cracks, puddles, fog, etc.

To help humanize the overwhelming statistics, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and senior staff photographer at Getty Images, John Moore, visited an Ebola treatment center of the organization, Doctors Without Borders in Paynesville, Liberia. At the treatment center, survivors spoke about the brothers, sisters, husbands and wives they lost due to the disease. They also spoke of recovery, stigmas they continue to face in their villages and renewed hope.

DeShawn said he became angry whenofficers pointed out the pictures of the Tyler’s three younger children on the mantle, assuming he didn’t belong there, because he was black and they were white. An argument ensued and DeShawn said one of the officers pepper-sprayed him in the face.

More white people trying to get black men killed. From now on, I’m calling the cops on every shady, school shooter looking, melanin deficient creep I see.
