Hi, my name is Mat. I'm an illustrator/artist from the UK. I create dream like, fanciful imagery based heavily around animals, made up creatures and the natural world. I'm available for freelance projects and commissions.
I have this piece 'Land of the Sleeping Giant' up for scoring in the Threadless x Wacom ‘Drawing’ competition. My drawing hand would be very grateful if it received some scores from you fine folks.
About the artwork:The bare bones of the drawing started with the idea of a sleeping panda that was a mixture of animal, rock and tree to try and reinforce the organic and ancient nature of the beast. I see the panda as a kind of protector of the land but has he been sleeping for too long?
I used a brush pen and fine liners of varying size for the original drawing. It was then coloured digitally. I will also be colouring the original with watercolour for it to then go on sale. Thanks!
