I was approached by Lost Lust Supply to collaborate on a lapel pin design as their featured artist for the month of January (2017) and ended up creating a lapel pin inspired by the internet meme of Drake's image as an emotional hip-hop artist. As I was joking around one day with a pal about what Drake would be like if he had a cold, this collaboration with Lost Lust gave me the opportunity to fulfill my meme dream of making this idea into a real-life-object. For the card, I played with images associated with either Drake himself or stereotypical things one might use when one might have a cold. The name of the pin itself is a play on words and the font is a recreation of his album cover "If You're Reading This it's Too Late."
The Sick Drake pin came in two color variations of the soft enamel pins with a limited run of "Blood Red." The pins are available online and at several retail chains in Michigan.
