new childrens book illustrators you have never heard of
MATTHEW SCOTT is my new illustration hero

I love to draw. I doodle whenever I have the time. There are always little characters waiting to get out of my head, but I do it for myself not. I do not consider myself to be an illustrator, but I always had dreams to be one. In part I think that is why I love children’s books. I now how much fun the artist had making these characters come to life, and knowing how much fun children had reading these books and getting lost in these worlds they created.

And that is where Matthew Scott comes into play. He is my newest illustration hero. Although he doesn’t strictly draw children’s illustrations, they are most definitely my favorite. He just completed the cover design for Nickelodeon’s comic book which you can see on his portfolio homepage. Matthew has also opened an etsy shop of his very own with some limited edition prints, in case you have to have one of your very own. This little picture below is from one of his design sheets for his third book about an adventurer of the seven seas ‘Goldfish Rum.’ Be sure to check out his blog as well for some stories and new pieces.
