Cover illustration of my “Makes” Instagram story

I created this picture for my personal Instagram sewing page to feature the new monthly projects I achieve. Therefore, I allowed myself to go a bit more crazy.

I inspired myself from the 80’s cyberpunk aesthetics, like Tron and arcade games.

I used bright neon colours to give a retro video game look, and added specific 1980’s references.

I played with the font and coloured layered shadows to make the whole piece resemble a glitching arcade game screen.
