100 Music Illustrations

I discovered these amazing illustrations done by Oscar Giménez. They immediately caught my eye as they combine my two favourite things: music and design. Oscar Giménez is a Spanish illustrator, born in Barcelona, who has begun to create and compile 100 illustrations which represent different musicians and bands. Some of the artists represented were from Spain so I didn’t really know much about their music but there also many international musicians who I liked.

I think the colours he uses are so vibrant and match with the image of the artists perfectly. Although the musicians do not always feature in the illustration that is supposed to represent them, their album or single artwork will often feature, Giménez makes it pretty obvious who the musicians are. This is also done by incorporating elements of their lyrics

These are some of my personal favourites:


Gil Scott-Heron


Sebastien Tellier


Yann Tiersen & Matt Elliot


The Horrors




White Lies
