Spike

This is a series of portraits of some of Spike Lee’s most memorable roles in his own films for the promotion of his talk for Red Bull Music Academy. I chose to do them all from his classic 80s and 90s films since he mostly did cameo roles after that. All of the illustrations were drawn on the iPad using the Procreate app.
