Masterful colour-wizard Matt Taylor has just updated his website with an overwhelming amount of new work. The Brighton-based illustrator has clearly been in high demand over recent months, completing projects for the likes of Computer Arts, Wired and Penguin US, where he’s been revamping the covers of John Le Carre’s much-loved thrillers. Matt’s crisp vector drawings and impeccable use of silhouettes provide a refreshingly engaging twist to a high-profile literary catalogue.
The astounding thing is, this isn’t even Matt’s day job; between the hours of nine and five he can be found working on equally beautiful commercial work over at Ilovedust. What a talented chap he is.
