My names Matthew and I am a visual artist and comics maker, like a lot of comics folk I do a lot of other stuff too, I work in videogames and enjoying painting and visual development (feel free to have a poke around the site to see for yourself) I love to tell stories with as few words as possible through creating colourful illustrations and compositions (as well as sequential art when possible).
A selection of quicker story compositions & illustrations.
Here's a summary of some of my small press comic and zine work form the past few years, some info on each in the descriptions. Ranging from 20 - 40 pages these small booklets are created in small runs that I mostly table with, alongside smaller prints and postcards.
In the past I've summarised my comic work as follows:
I'm making comics simply to figure out what they are.
As a result I've enjoyed making little zine media experiments, as much as attempting completed presented comic works, so tabling has been super important to getting a sense of where to go next.
While tabling at a wonderful Thought Bubble in 2021 I had a lot of great and friendly chats with people, and was really encouraged by the reaction to my short comic project 'The Red Planet' in particular, so I'm planning to to tell another story through the medium of Riso print and 3D lens in 2022.
Thanks for reading!
