While some bands are content to simply sound cartoon-ish, Gorillaz are animated ideas brought to life by comic-book creator Jamie Hewlett ("Tank Girl") and Blur frontman Damon Albarn, who lends his vocals to most of the songs on the group's self-titled debut album. Other "real-life" musicians who assisted the group in the studio include rapper Del The Funky Homosapien, former Talking Heads bassist Tina Weymouth, Cibo Matto's Miho Hatori and Dan "The Automator" Nakamura, who produced the album.7 Questions With Gorillaz

His studio work toys with various methods of image creation, utilising markers, spray paint, enamels and acrylics. He prefers to use wood, steel and other found objects that echo the urban landscape.
