Kanye West - 808s and Heartbreak by KAWS

Shortly after the initial release of Kanye West’s 808s and Heartbreak, he commissioned Brooklyn-based artist KAWS to design the cover art for the special edition release of the album. KAWS put his own spin on the cover of 808s and Heartbreak by adding cartoon gloves around the original deflated heart balloon photo and showed it broken in half. He also switched out the pastel panel of colors on the side for bright ones. In addition to the revamping the cover, he added his colorful illustrations to the interior artwork, including a photo of Kanye with KAWS’s signature cartoon-like drawings surrounding and winding around him.
