This month, TASCHEN is releasing a major monograph of the work of the British cartoonist Jamie Hewlett. From his early comic work Tank Girl to his widely-acclaimed work with Damon Albarn illustrating the members of virtual band Gorillaz, through his 2015 show, The Suggestionists, at Saatchi Gallery, the tome traces Hewlett’s impressive and varied career spanning over two decades.
The compilation also explores the wide spectrum of influences that have fed into Hewlett’s creative output. Works from the Last 25 Years launches with a conversation between the artist and the French fashion photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino where Hewlett talks of drawing inspiration from music and fine art, including hip-hop culture and slasher films.
Edited by Julius Wiedemann, the book comprises over 200 pages of work and contains more than 400 artworks, underlining the BAFTA-winning designer’s legacy in field of visual branding.
