Stanley Donwood

 

WHO - Who are ya ?

I am sometimes Stanley Donwood. Sometimes I am other people.

WHAT - What ya do ?

I draw pictures and paint pictures and write unpleasant stories. And I do other some stuff too.

WHY - Why you do it ?

I am otherwise unemployable

For a long time being asked the question “What do you do?” resulted in a sort of mumbling and staring, before a stuttering response which didn’t make either my interlocutor or myself any wiser. But more recently I’ve been putting on exhibitions and having books published, which along with my longstanding association with a well-known rock band has given me a slightly increased level of confidence. So nowadays I can say, with what I hope is calmness, that I’m an artist and a writer. Although you are, of course, free to decide about that yourself.
