Gorillaz Co-Founder Jamie Hewlett Announces New Art Book Project
The 518-page printed edition of Hewlett's illustrations will feature unseen Gorillaz art and other images from his twenty-five-year career.
It seems that the creative wheels of the Gorillaz team never stop turning. While the project’s frontman Damon Albarn ventured out to work on other projects (including his solo album released earlier this year), Gorillaz’ visual creator Jamie Hewlett was also working on projects of his own. Hewlett recently announced in the comments of his Instagram that he finished a book collection of his work, spanning over twenty-five years across 518 pages.
At this time there’s no hard release date for the book, but it is confirmed that some of its colorful contents have never been seen by the public before.
Along with his work as part of Gorillaz, Hewlett also co-designed the animated introduction for the Beijing 2008 Olympics, worked on the well-received comic book series Tank Girl, and contributed designs to DC Comics and 2000 AD. A lot of his art can also be seen on his Instagram (@hewll), which will keep you scrolling while waiting for this new book (and hopefully new Gorillaz material).
