Cheers London!

On October 1st I depart London for some California living. I feel really fortunate to have been spotted by Google and look forward to joining their creative team.

Dear London. You've been astounding, frustrating, rewarding and immeasurable on so many levels. You've introduced me to incredible people whilst I've tried to capture you with line and colour. I've sat on your pavements and your comfy seats, and love them both the same! You're an amazing city that's  shaped me as a person, in some small way I hope these images return the favour!

Matt

I've been following your work for a while and I think you're really talented! So congrats on the new job.

I'll be moving to California this fall too. Who knows, maybe I'll run into you while you are sketching in a quiet street in SF!

Just made the transition to SF myself for work as well. It's a great place and I'm meeting artists everywhere I turn. Maybe we'll bump into one another one day.
