Tell me a little about yourself…
My name is Jesse Kunerth and I’m from Orlando, FL currently living in Palm Bay, Florida. I make music posters, mostly hip hop and indie bands. To create the posters, I use hand drawn illustrations of the band or rapper. Then I combine found textures as a background element.

How’d you get started, or what prompted you to begin crafting in your genre?
I started doing the posters when I realized there weren’t a lot of creative hip hop posters out there. I loved hip hop and I’m sure there were others so I just did it. One of my first customers was Questlove from the Roots, followed by A Tribe Called Quest.

I fell in love with hip hop in high school and would draw rappers out of magazines. It was very raw. Mastered the software in college and just continued to grow. It’s all a process and basically doing the same thing I did in high school but just polished the final piece.
