Not long after The Maccabees split, frontman Orlando Weeks announced his return with a new hardback book and accompanying soundtrack album. Although best known for music, Weeks was first drawn to art. He studied Fine Arts at the Camberwell College of Arts before pursuing a degree in Illustration at the University of Brighton. Weeks rediscovered his passion for illustration and storytelling during downtime as The Maccabees toured in support of their chart-topping final album ‘Marks To Prove It’. When the band disbanded, Weeks’ three creative endeavours (songwriting, storytelling and illustration) converged as he developed the story of The Gritterman.
