This is artwork from three personal projects I created. They began as a response to Madonna's lack of streaming options for her older music and her reluctance to reissue any of her albums in expanded box sets.

Since publishing these projects, beginning in February 2020, the response from Madonna's fans online has been overwhelming, with hundreds of comments, private messages and requests for copies of a physical product. Beginning in May 2020, Madonna and her team started publishing her old singles and remixes on streaming platforms and digital music services. On her birthday in August 2021, Madonna and Warner Music Group announced a career-spanning partnership that will see a “multi-year catalog series” to launch in 2022, including Madonna's personally curated expansive deluxe editions for many of her albums, for the first time in her career.

These projects were ways for me to try new techniques and learn from designers at the tops of their fields who came before me. Fabien Baron, Kevin Raegan and Jeri Heiden were my three key inspirations on these works. I studied the photography and retouching of Mario Testino for the Ray of Light collection, retouching over 50 raw, unedited photos to resemble their 1998 counterparts with a modern style. I painted and animated abstract marbled art for Ray of Light's box design. I also created concepts for several pieces of merchandise including t-shirts, posters, hoodies, jewelry and badges to complement these designs.
