His work is full of energy and interesting twisty lines, with a slightly manic aspect to it sometimes. To start a piece of work he usually starts with a pen and paper, then digitalises it on his Apple Mac. Matthew loves his job, and still can’t quite believe that he gets to draw, doing what he loves for a living! He is constantly driven to get better and develop his career with Advocate, with the help of his wife keeping him grounded to one project at a time.
Matthew is currently living in the welsh countryside, surrounded by mountains and a beautiful national park. He has a large black Labrador, who lives a life of luxury and dog biscuits, and is generally snoring on the sofa whenever Matthew is working at his desk!
Matthew is especially grateful to Advocate Art, as within a week of his portfolio being taken on he was offered the chance to illustrate the new Mr Men book, an invaluable piece from his childhood, lending legitimacy to what he’s doing. Letting him know that he must be on the right track!
