Terry

Today I'm going to post some stuff about Terry this time (sitting on the floor in this picture). He's Giant Rhinos front man, lead singer and guitarist. I thought it would be nice to mention some of the inspiration and reference points.

When I designed him I gave him those glasses because I'm a fan of a lot of 'britpop' from the 90s. It was supposed to be a reference to both Jarvis Cocker (also in Pulp) and Graham Coxon (also in Blur). But I think most people at the moment think of current hipster fashion like this ...


Daley (and his hair) is now on the BBC's Sound of 2011 list. (But I thought I'd note that its not what I was trying to reference with the glasses. I wasn't referencing Weezer or The Decemberists either, but I don't think these bands are bad)

I saw Daley sing with Gorillaz in November at the O2 arena. These are some of the sketches, Daley is in the top right corner)

  1. That Jarvis is spot on. Right down to his stare. Can't wait to see more!
