Curated.Works: The JT Odyssey Experience – Spaceship Coupe

It’s been 2 months since the released of Justin Timberlake‘s The 20/20 Experience and I hope you have found your favourite tracks. Spaceship Coupe is a more chilling track in this album and Gerardo Larrea has given Justin a edgier look.

Versace S/S 2013 is what Justin wears in this illustration and of course, he is continuing his space journey. Because of the suit, I feel like this illustration is more futuristic than the previous ones. This is also  piece I finally get to see the spaceship and it looks good!

Let’s see what Gerardo has to say abou this illustration piece.

Curated.Works: The JT Odyssey Experience – Let The Groove Get In

Last month, I showed you the first piece of the JT Experience series and you know Gerardo is bringing you on a space journey. Now it is time to show you the 2nd illustration.

Let The Groove Get In is one of my favourite tracks in The 20/20 Experience as it reminds me of Gloria Estefan‘s songs. In this piece, however, Gerardo takes a different approach than my vision and brings us to the middle of the universe. Justin Timberlake is now dressed in an amazing Alexander McQueen S/S 2013 suit and he has brought the DJ Music Player along with him on this journey.

Why did you decide to dress Justin Timberlake in Alexander Mcqueen? How did this song inspire the illustration?
One of my favorite S/S 2013 menswear collections of the season was Alexander McQueen so I wanted to illustrate one of the looks. I found it fun to illustrate this suit with prints of insects to give Justin a fun and groovy look.

The idea of this illustration is to enter Justin Timberlake’s universe through his music, and let the melody makes us feel like we are floating in the air, as if we were actually in space gravitating.

What song from The 20/20 Experience will be the next illustration piece? You will have to keep an eye on this site in May.

Curated.Works: The JT Odyssey Experience – Suit & Tie

Justin Timberlake‘s new album, The 20/20 Experience, is about to hit store tomorrow and I am sure some of you may have heard the album on iTunes already. As a fan of of Justin and his music works, 2 months ago I approached one of my favourite illustrators, Gerardo Larrea, and asked him to collaborate a project with me based on this new album. Since I always believe music is part of the pop culture, I think Gerardo‘s illustration style is a perfect fit for this series. Right now, we invite you to experience The 20/20 Experience in a new dimension.

The first illustration piece is inspired by the leading single Suit & Tie and of course, Justin Timberlake is dressed in Tom Ford. Unlike what you have seen in the video, Gerardo is taking us to a space journey and in my opinion, this is a refreshing idea. Below are 2 questions I have for him regarding this piece.
