I’m Joel Abad, an Illustrator, muralist, and graphic designer born in Manresa, Barcelona in 1980. For the last 15 years I’ve been running Grafficants, a graphic design studio, and hardcoding top level websites with attitude. Right now I’m only working as a freelance illustrator, mainly working for the music scene – doing gig posters, album designs and merchandising.
I’ve proudly been working for: Harley-Davidson, Warner Music, Arnette, Vans, Rockzone Magazine, HFMN Crew, Ripper Seeds, Crème International and RockAction Produccions among others. And I’ve been able to draw for bands such as Lagwagon, The Queers, Marky Ramone, The Ataris, MxPx, Biohazard, Blowfuse, Crisix, Pennywise, Bad Religion, The Toy Dolls, Sick of it all, and Satanic Surfers.
Some of my illustrations appear on american fanzines such as Unibrow or Monsters Holding Bitches, I’ve been featured in the Artists of Instagram book and exhibit many times at Gallery1998 in Los Angeles.
