Tobias Hall’s Song Lyric-Inspired Illustrations


During a brief stint of post-graduation unemployment in 2010, UK-based illustrator/designer Tobias Hall put his newfound free time to good use by illustrating a series of posters that re-imagine songs lyrics. The collection, appropriately entitled Lyrics, transforms images created by musicians such as Miles Davis, Radiohead, and Mumford & Sons into stunning visuals that capture the tunes’ vibes. Explore the lyrics from hits like “Summertime” and Ellie Goulding’s cover of “Your Song” in gorgeous illustrated form below, and purchase Hall’s colorful posters over at Society6.
