Raving Kanye


For Vegas Seven Magazine, a portrait of Kanye West to go with a fun article about how his EDM (Electronic Dance Music) influenced new album Yeezus may spell the end of Las Vegas’ EDM based economy.

Art Director Ryan Olbrysh (formerly of Las Vegas Weekly) wanted Kanye done up as a raver. I had to take a crash course on the rave culture–I knew about the pacifiers and glow necklaces, but wasn’t familiar with the beads, furry leg warmers and such. It was quite an education for me and I had fun with this one.
