I was inspired to do this design in many ways. I’ve been dabbling in comics and ink illustrations, and decided to experiment with colors. I loved being able to use both drawing and the captions to convey how I felt. I chose red as the main color here because usually when I meet up with the DJs the venues are usually bathed in a red light. It also reminded me of the “ON-AIR” sign outside the air studio at KALX that let volunteers know when the DJ was on mic. Plus, it represents passion.
