Alongside their skills in singing, dancing, and rapping, these six idols are just as talented at art—and they used their abilities to draw their very own album covers!
1. Jackson Wang (GOT7)
Back in 2019, GOT7’s Jackson Wang drew the album cover artwork for his debut studio album, Mirrors.
Many fans believe the design is based on the octagonal bagua mirror, a Taoist amulet used to ward off negative energy.
2. Hyunjin (Stray Kids)
While it hasn’t been officially confirmed, fans believe Hyunjin drew the cover art for Stray Kids’ recent digital single, Mixtape: OH.
Stays already suspected his involvement from the moment the artwork was revealed, but they were almost certain after Hyunjin shared two more lollipop drawings he created on Bubble.
3. Key (SHINee)
SHINee’s Key was one of the earliest idols to draw his group’s album artwork.
In 2013, he painted the unique and brightly colored cover for The Misconceptions of Us.
4. Kino (PENTAGON)
Last year, PENTAGON’s Kino revealed that he drew the digital album cover artwork for WE:TH.
He went on to confirm that the daisy he painted, which originally had a pink background, was a gift for Hui ahead of his enlistment in the military.
5. Jiyoon (Weeekly)
The most recent cover on this list is Weeekly’s WE PLAY, drawn by Jiyoon.
The cover artwork (which was made in two color variations) features a whole host of bright and adorable objects, from burgers to roller skates to a cat in space. Jiyoon says the image took her a whole week to draw, but she was proud when she saw the final result.
6. Miya (GWSN)
The cover for GWSN’s The Keys may look like a professional stock graphic, but it was actually illustrated by Miya.
The ornate drawing truly shows Miya’s technical skill as an artist as well as her eye for beauty.
