Matt Phelan ladies and gentlemen. (pause for applause)
How could you not adore his loose whimsical style?
This talented Philadelphia, illustrator/Author, uses a combination of pencil, watercolor
and ink to capture these budding moments of real (sometimes desperate) emotion,
(ie; look at that hamster eyeing up that sandwich, I could melt.) I love the loose lines
and sketchy quality of his work. I also love the way he draws his children. Look at the
large cheeks and tiny eyes. He manages so much emotion with so little drawn detail.
Of his many illustrated books some include: The Seven Wonders of Sassafrass Springs
The hugely talented Matt Phelan is surely an inspiration to my illustration.
Many thanks to him for sharing his work with us.
