MFmachine - after school special

digital illustration

printed on 157gsm semi-gloss art paper

MFmachine are a synth-forward, math rock/Japanese-pop-inspired band based in Beijing. After School Special is an eclectic collection of their early work which they wrote while still in school.

Inspired by the animation that accompanies lo-fi hiphop mixes on YouTube, I created this illustration to capture chill evenings spent listening to tapes on a school night, trying to hide your smoking habit.
