If you’re not familiar with the CMJ Music Marathon, then one look at Jeremyville‘s illustration for the festival should get you up to speed. His art for the FADER/Converse CMJ party is a visual overload featuring every possible scenario you could ever encounter this week.
CMJ Music Marathon is New York City’s resident music festival. It happens every October and sees hundreds of people coming in from all over to catch the latest up-and-coming bands. Travel is a prevalent theme, with images of people walking, biking, and skateboarding throughout. All characters in the illustration are sporting slick Converses as they stroll every which direction. Some well-known streets in Brooklyn, NY are labeled like Metropolitan Ave and Grand, signifying that this is the center of the action. Characters are also depicted jamming, singing and rocking out to music. Overall, Jeremyville’s illustration conveys the feeling that this is a music festival for everyone and creates a sense of community.
