Kendrick Lamar artwork from Pathetic Pixels

Kendrick Lamar cover artwork by Pathetic Pixels

Self-proclaimed “antiquated digital artist” Pathetic Pixels created custom cover artwork for a variety of records from hip hop heavyweight Kendrick Lamar. The works span from Kendrick’s pre Section .80 songs like “Sex with Society” to post good kid m.A.A.d city tracks like “The Jig is Up.” Drawing inspiration from the work of artists like Saul Bass and content of Kendrick’s lyrics, Pathetic Pixels’ artwork conveys just how powerful the content of K Dot’s music is.

Check out the unofficial album artwork below as well as a commissioned piece the artist created for a Kendrick fan depicting individual “scenes” from good kid m.A.A.d city.

Pathetic Pixels Kendrick Lamar custom artwork for GKMC
“Each of the scenes is laid out start to finish in a comic book style. The first scene was initially the group of friends in a circle around the old religious female character but I felt there would be too much embellishing for it to be a stand alone frame. I instead chose to have us open with Sherane which I thought was a much more powerful image although we do lose some continuity. The inclusion of the Louis Burgers event helps to highlight the parallels this story has with Menace II Society and Boyz N’ The Hood, the latter of which is actually referenced on the album. Although it’s not canonical it was important never the less.” – Pathetic Pixels
