‘This is the river erosion, showing how the bank has almost been sliced away. You can see the men folk looking at us on our boat – watching us quizzically as to who we are. I liked the idea of putting the paintings on paper and envelopes that were a bit dog-eared, as if they had been dropped in a puddle.’
Jamie Hewlett is an English comic book artist and designer. He is known for being the co-creator of the comic book series “Tank Girl”, an anarchic strip about a teenage punk girl who drove a tank and had a mutant kangaroo for a boyfriend. By 1992, Hewlett had become a major creator in the comic industry, and one of the few to break into mainstream media. He became especially famous for series such as “Hewligan’s Haircut” in “2000 AD” issues 700 to 707 and “Shade, the Changing Man” for DC Comics. Considered a prominent artist, Jamie Hewlett is the man behind Gorillaz, Murdoc, 2D, Russel and Noodle. Hewlett has also worked extensively in fine art, most notably exhibiting in London’s Saatchi Gallery in 2015. Hewlett however would be first to deny the distinction between fine art and comic book art.
