Behind the scenes with Jamie Hewlett

Posted at 5:45 pm, May 1, 2012 in Arts & Entertainment, Music & Nightlife

ABSOLUT LondonWhen ABSOLUT vodka wanted someone to illustrate their new London series, they teamed up with graphic artist and Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett to conjure up some quintessentially London characters to adorn their bottles. Jamie has created seven quirky peeps who have influenced the capital from Dickensian London to the present day, via a dandy, 60’s chick, SKA dude, punk rocker and 80’s cool cat. We asked what you wanted to find out from the great draftsman and put in a few questions of our own which he answers in the exclusive edit of the behind-the-scenes interview below. Sadly we never found out who did all the washing up when he lived with Damon or any other domestic gossip. Sorry folks, next time.
