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
Two posts in one day? What witchcraft is this?
Well it’s the kind of thing that I hope I’ll be able to do a bit more from now on - but before you delete me from your dash, it wont be happening every day and in fact the only reason it’s happening today is because I got home from work to find a package from the good folk at W.W.Norton with a book inside that I illustrated the cover to about this time last year.
As you’ll be able to see from the photos it is one of the series of PG Wodehouse novels currently being reissued by Norton, each one covered by a different illustrator (some of my favorites including the masterful Tomer Hanuka and Matthew Woodson). You can find it on US shelves or Amazon now and as someone who had never read a Wodehouse until this one I can say it was a pleasant surprise and a very enjoyable read.
More book cover blogging tomorrow (and back to an old faithful…)
