The Hewlett's Gone From Tank Girl to Gorillaz
And Now That You're Warmed Up, Baby...

Since the first issue of Deadline magazine hit the stands I've been a big fan of artist/designer Jamie Hewlett. You'll know Hewlett from his awesome work on Tank Girl or for the supersexy virtual band Gorillaz. But with the Gorillaz on hiatus and Tank Girl getting a relaunch with a new artist we couldn't help but wonder what Mister Hewlett has been up to these days.

Turns out, he's been up to more than you might suspect!

There's Monkey: Journey to the West, a re-working of the ancient Chinese legend into a massive performance combining Cirque Du Solei acrobatics and animated film. This show reunites Hewlett and his Gorillaz co-creator Damon Albarn, with Albarn providing the score while Hewlett will design the set, animations and costumes. The show also promises 45 Chinese circus acrobats, Shaolin monks and Chinese vocalists! If you're thinking about catching the world premiere next month and making me incredibly jealous, check out more details here.

Hewlett art also popped up and on the walls of one of London's most popular new night/sexclubs Kabaret Prophecy. For those Hewlett fans who either live too far away to pop in or those who are afraid of such places here's some interior shots of the club for your viewing pleasure.

But perhaps the most interesting place to find Mister Hewlett's art showing up these days is on a series of ultraswanky limited-edition sex toys made in conjunction with Kabaret Prophecy. Yep, you read that right... Jamie Hewlett vibrators! Check 'em out, but be warned you might be exposed to some cartoon naughty bits!

From the brochure
The Ultimate Member Collection distills the ethos of this renowned luxury nightclub into charismatic objects of desire. Each Ultimate Member Limited is part of a limited edition of 1500 pieces.

There's been some disagreement among the IsoStaff about whether we think any Hewlett fan should actually use a limited-to-1500 $275 sex toy. Personally, I think Jared's in the wrong on this one... life is short, Jamie Hewlett would want you to indulge yourself in your objects of desire!
