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
A lot of the stuff I post on here is for shows, self promo and my own gratification. But as it turns out I spend most of my days NOT doing only that and in fact busting out a lot of editorial work (because, best will in the world, selling 25 prints at a show don’t pay the bills).
I don’t post a whole lot of it, mainly because it would clutter up your stream, but I was really happy with how this one turned out (because at a certain point, and for no explainable reason I tried to use ALL the colors), so here you go.
This will be cropping up in this months Computer Arts, and is to accompany an article about reinventing yourself as a creative (hence the man bursting out his skin in a new more creative form). Subscribers will have the magazine now and everyone else can pick it up next week - and you should, it’s a good read.
