Jamie Hewlett: Inside the Mind of Jamie Hewlett
Artist Jamie Hewlett is easily considered one of the most energetic figures of contemporary pop culture. Hewlett emerged in the mid 1990’s as the co-creator of the zeitgeist-defining Tank Girl comic book. In 1998 Hewlett and then-roommate Blur frontman Damon Albarn created the unique cartoon band, Gorillaz. Hewlett and Albarn have recorded four studio albums and have mounted breathtaking live spectacles. Gorillaz has sold over a mind boggling twelve million copies combined. The virtual band consists of four animated members including 2-D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle, and Russel Hobbs. It is widely believed that the cartoon characters along with the fresh eclectic melodies helped skyrocket the band to success.
