Gorillaz Co-Creator Jamie Hewlett Preps Retrospective Art Book



Artist Jamie Hewlett, who is perhaps best known to music fans as the co-creator of the virtual band Gorillaz, has announced through his Instagram account that he is prepping a retrospective art book, which will compile his work from throughout his 25-year career, as well as previously unseen work.

"I just finished putting together a book of my work, collected from the last 25 years," Hewlett commented on a recent Instagram post. "It's 518 pages big and full of all my favourite stuff including lots of unseen images. Will let you know when it's coming out."

Outside of his work with Gorillaz, Hewlett is also a renowned comic book artist, co-creating the Tank Girl series with Alan Martin and contributing to the Judge Dredd series. In addition to his comic book work, Hewlett also developed the London stage show for Monkey: Journey to the West with his Gorillaz co-creator Damon Albarn.

In other Gorillaz news, Damon Albarn recently revealed plans to revive the beloved alternative hip-hop outfit, telling The Sydney Morning Herald that he intends on releasing a new Gorillaz album in 2016. It will be the first Gorillaz album since 2011's The Fall, which was their fourth overall.

"I believe there is a future for Gorillaz," Hewlett told Consequence of Sound in 2013. "But Gorillaz is quite a complicated and expensive thing to produce. So, I think we need to wait a little bit to see what happens because usually in the music industry everything changes. And Damon's got a bunch of other things going on."
