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
One last drop of old work, and then it really is on to the new stuff. This is actually quite recent (only a month or two old), and was a sort of half pitch, half self initated piece whilst at the old day job.
I was really taken with this seasons Gyakusou collection from Nike and Jun Takahashi - the beautiful technical detailing whilst placing function above all and still managing to make a really good looking piece of clothing - and I wanted to try and replicate that mix of detail and simplicity in the drawing.
Again, I’d rather these were out in the world than gathering virtual dust on the hard drive so here you go. Next up, genuine NEW work (rather than rehashing the greatest hits of unused projects from eighteen months in a studio…)
