I look at a lot of fantastic styles of art every single day as an art director here at Capstone.
Today I want to highlight one of those pieces of art, created by Seitu Hayden for the American Graphic title X: A Biography of Malcom X. The book highlights Malcolm’s life-altering pilgrimage to Mecca where he discovers the power of brotherhood.
I love in this illustration how that light of hope is reflected in his face. His eyes have a focus that looks optimistically forward into the future, while his body language is both confident and approachable. Artwork of this caliber should be celebrated and the last day of Black History month seems as fitting a time as any.
Nice work Seitu.
