samspratt​‘s sketches and alternative cover for Janelle Monae’s “Electric Lady,” album cover.

PITCHFORK: What were some of your visual inspirations?

SAM SPRATT: It was a pretty random palette: Afrofuturism, Androids, uniformity, Mod sorority, a little Prince, a little Donna Summer, a little MJ, a bit of Egypt, a hint of punk, and some cheesy 80s sci-fi. But it wasn’t until several weeks in– upon hearing some of the new tracks, actually– that I was able to bring all of these disparate ideas together.

Every visual inspiration he mentioned, I see VIVIDLY, because all of those inspirations definitely make up Janelle’s image and Cindi Mayweather’s way of expression.

I want the 2nd to last image on my wall.

People ask me what brushes I use, and really it’s a hard question because I use many (this is a small sampling of some favorites) and because I also tweak brush settings constantly and encourage you to do the same. In Photoshop, you can turn stock brushes into amazing tools by simply experimenting with the transfer, direction, texture, and dual brush settings. I say experimenting because that’s seriously the best part of it. In the digital medium, it’s easy to make things look synthetic, but often your most random and loose of efforts will yield the most exciting results. This is just what I use, but figured I would put them down for those curious enough to draw inspiration from and start fiddling with making your own.
