This is a digital illustration that I did using Adobe Photoshop of my good buddy Edmond Huszar, "OVERWERK." When designing I tend to stick to my minimal and clean style but on this piece I decided to change it up and step outside of my comfort zone. I used various brushes and diverse strokes and blends to arrive at the final piece.
For those that aren't into the electro scene and may not know OVERWERK, he is a 23-year old producer and songwriter from London, Canada who introduced himself to the world of electro with the release of his debut EP "The Nth Degree". Now, one year later, he follows up with his highly anticipated sophomore EP, "After Hours". The name OVERWERK stems from Huszar’s early passion for graphic design. Originally the title of a work-in-progress design portfolio called “over worked”, Huszar adapted the name while paying homage to electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk. My good buddy Edmond now represents the purest expression of Huszar’s own creative genius. His sound is undeniably unique in itself as it blends the hard-hitting complexities of electro with the sweeping melodies of house music. What stands out the most, however, is the distinct quality and technicality of his music which firmly sets him apart from the electro community. "After Hours" is a testimony to the tireless effort and love for music that defines Huszar as an artist. With the utmost devotion to music lovers, he promises to leave fans and first-time listeners with an unparalleled experience. To coincide with this special release, OVERWERK will be bringing his epic sound to clubs and festivals across North America and Europe.
