About

Matt is a professional illustrator based in Wakefield.

He started out working in the service industry before pursuing his dream of becoming an artist. He picked up a foundation degree in Art & Design at Wakefield College and studied Illustration at Leeds Arts University.

Matt gravitates towards children’s book illustration and editorial work, as well as frequently taking on private commissions.

His process starts with small thumbnails which are then mocked up digitally in photoshop. These digital mock-ups are then worked in with traditional painting and textures.

Commissions are open.
