July 2017 #198
Since their debut album in 2001, the Gorillaz project of Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett has been one of the most unique and art-driven music groups to ever form. In celebration of their new album, Humanz, Juxtapoz sat down with comic book artist and Gorillaz co-creator Hewlett for the July 2017 cover story, discussing the evolution of the characters, making visuals that connect to music, and how Gorillaz reflects the world we live in today.
