Erykah Badu New Years Eve Poster

I was asked recently to illustrate and design another poster for Erykah Badu, this time to commemorate her performance in Oakland on New Years Eve. A few ideas were tossed around, but ultimately we landed with the idea of Erykah posing as the Roman god of beginnings and transitions, Janus. Since I am in love with drawing hair, this gave me the perfect excuse to drawing a braid coming from each head, meeting in the middle to unite the two. Pomegranates and grapes rest on the border to symbolize prosperity and abundance.
