My name is Matt Taylor, I'm an illustrator and I live in the country. I don't look much like that picture up there.
This blog is for things that I just finished drawing and bits and pieces that I haven't found a home for in my folio yet.
Speaking of which, you can see my full blown folio by directing your website towards www.matttaylor.co.uk
For those of you who know what I look like, you will no doubt recognise the studious book reader in the illustration above (albeit with a slightly better hairline). For those of you who dont, well, it’s me. I was asked by the ladies and gents of Computer Arts to produce this months cover, an offer too good to turn down.
And when they said that the cover needed to show a designer-type reading a book, I thought ‘I look like a designer-type’, and there wasn’t really much i could do to NOT draw myself. So there you go. I’ve attached the first sketch and then the developed process pics, because lord knows if there’s one thing this post needs its more pictures of me.
You can find it on the shelves now in most good newsagents, and if you can fight past that cover there are the usual wealth of features, articles and general inspiration inside.
