For my 100th post, here’s a collection of work from my favourite illustrator: Jamie Hewlett.
Tank Girl: a character created during Hewlett’s university years with Alan Martin, eventually became a regular comic strip in Deadline Magazine. Adapted into a film in 1995 (with animated sequences) only to become a critical and commercial failure. The comic is still in publication under different artists.
Cover art for Shade: The Changing Man
Comic of ‘Common People’ by Pulp
‘Get the Freebies’: a comic strip from The Face magazine. Later adapted into the one-off programme Phoo Action by BBC Three.
Virgin Cola TV advert, 1999
Gorillaz during Phase 1 of the project. Hewlett created the band with Damon Albarn.
Gorillaz during Phase 2. (Notice the significant change of drawing style)
Character designs for Jimmy Jane adult toys
Monkey: Journey to the West, an opera featuring English and Chinese-influenced music, martial arts, acrobats and animation. Another collaboration with Damon Albarn. Also used to promote the 2008 Beijing Olympics in the UK.
Part of a series of watercolours sold in aid of the River Basin Programme, an Oxfam campaign working in Bangladesh and Nepal.
‘Stylo’: from Gorillaz’ Phase 3. The first Gorillaz video to have the band entirely in 3D animation.

Gogol Bordello are a ‘gypsy punk’ band based in New York. They consist of nine members who have backgrounds from the USA, Ecuador, Ukraine, Israel, Ethiopia, China and many, many more countries. Their music combines styles such as punk, traditional European music and dub. Their shows are exceptional, with colourful costumes and energetic performances.
