Well, we all know what a majestic singer Freddie Mercury was, yet he was also a great composer, phenomenal entertainer but what about visual art? Of course, he was brilliant at this as well.

He graduated from Ealing with a Diploma in Graphic Design. He was behind many of Queen’s album covers, their videos, their outfits and stage costumes. Oh, and he also designed Queen’s logo. What really strikes me is the modernity and simple harmony of his drawings, as it was for his songs as well. That just shows that when you’re a genius, you are no matter what you do: whether it be working or idling away.
