Noel Fielding's book channels the creative influences of Henri Rousseau, Roy Lichtenstein and Salvador Dali, through the comedian's strange and singular, not to say surreal mind. Hilarious and beautifully produced, the book is a visual feast which will delight and entertain Noel's millions of fans. "Growing up in the jungles of India there was no need for drawing or painting. I would sometimes arrange ants into primitive still lives or scratch out portraits onto the trunks of trees. Things changed when I was 11, a lame tiger who owned a stationery shop gave me the keys to his stock room, I would roll around in acrylic and oil pastels in reverie, licking canvases and tucking coloured pencils into my wild hair. It was here I learned how to draw and paint well enough to be accepted into Croyden Art College. There, Dexter Dalwood (Turner Prize nominee) taught me and after two years under his supreme tutelage and much hard graft he adviced me to become a comedian." Noel Fielding

Reviews

* Fielding's visual art is not a million miles away from the disturbing world of Nabootique he and Barratt create in The Mighty Boosh and it's no surprise that his depictions of talking crocodiles, Mick Jagger and disturbing fox-men - Matt Groening meets Hieronymous Bosch - have become highly prized collectibles Evening Standard * The boy can paint. What's more, his offbeat, pop-art pictures are seriously commercial. Stylistically, it's somewhere between Henri Rousseau and Tove Jansson, creator of The Moomins Independent * This coffee-table-classic is to be a Mighty Book indeed The Sun
