Something Just Like This [Artwork]

A breakdown of how we created the artwork for The Chainsmokers / Coldplay collab 'Something Just Like This'

We were tasked with creating the artwork for the Chainsmokers / Coldplay collab 'Something Just Like This' 

My idea for the artwork was to get a kid and dress him in a makeshift cape that a kid his age would as the song struck me of the time when we were kids and believed in superheroes (some of us still do!)

We did a casting and found little Cooper perfect for the job, with the help of my talented friend Olivia we gave his face a little constellation face-paint.

Following on from this we set him up on a trampoline to get some dynamic shots of him in midair and doing some superhero poses.

Lastly using the final photo as ref I painted the pose in a childish way with special brushes to give a playful childish effect like it had been done by an infant:
