Role in Gorillaz
Matt describes himself as the 'webmaster' of Gorillaz.com in a brief interview in the Charts of Darkness 2001 documentary about Gorillaz. Initially Jamie Hewlett recruited just Matt Watkins to help design the Gorillaz virtual space online but it soon became clear the project would need more hands and ideas, leading to the creation of Zombie Flesh Eaters, Hewlett's company.
Matt was a member of Jamie Hewlett's company, Zombie Flesh Eaters, which has also worked on a variety of projects away from Gorillaz. Matt Watkins is also a founder member of Beat13, a loose art collective based in the Birmingham area.
