Jamie Hewlett is the award-winning artist behind the world's most popular cartoon band, The Gorillaz. Before he created The Gorillaz with his then-flatmate Damon Albarn, he created the seminal punk-rock comic Tank Girl. The Gorillaz have just released a lavish "oral history" of the band called Gorillaz: Rise of the Ogre.
I talked with Jamie about how music has influenced his art, how Hollywood ruined Tank Girl, and why rock star Damon Albarn was sharing a flat in the first place.
