Lil B’s cover for his single “Katy Perry” (Did he do it himself? Did he hire someone?) manages to be both profoundly obnoxious and beautifully simple at the same time. A truly #Based and #Rare design.
I’m a fan of the simple yet beautifully raw design. It has character and I would check out the single based upon this design.
Seriously, dude? This looks like it was drawn in MS Paint.

Well, the only way I can see this as beautiful is if I read it as some sort of art, and what is saying is: look, I’ll just write some stuff in MS Paint, and because (I think) I am famous, everybody is going to dig it – and that is wrong, we shouldn’t look at design this way.
But I think it is because he just really think he can get away with anything, and apparently he can.
The problem is that, by doing that, he becomes what customers call: “the guy who just do a little drawing and charges a lot of money”, that we, serious designers are tired to battle against. In this case, the customer is right.
