After graduating from university, Matthew spent several years working in design for the face paint manufacturer where he gained the technical skills required to convert hand drawn illustrations into the vector art included in his book. He currently works as a graphic designer developing marketing materials for an online women’s retailer in Dallas. He has refined his unique style of drawing over the past ten years and is blown away by the opportunity to see his work published. 

When he’s not drawing, Matthew enjoys collecting insects, playing with legos, and chasing around his 2 young kids with his wife.

Matthew and his family are involved with Retina Foundation research to help find a cure for Choroideremia. If you want to get involved, please visit
