Says Barcelona-based illustrator, Oscar Gimenez, of his beautiful line drawings: ‘I used to be a big fan of fashion illustration. When I started illustrating, that’s what everybody was doing, at least in Barcelona. But I get so easily distracted and bored with trends that I quickly came off it. However, it looks like a few people out there thought I had to pay off for my contempt, and they decided I had to do it this year. Hence all the work on fashion I’ve been doing lately. Lots of vain people posing just for beauty’s sake! Luckily, I got distracted by a couple of conceptual jobs that came in between and temporarily woke my brain up. One of them, a short animation for the Audi Q5 Generis, has given me the chance to see for the first time my work in motion’.
