Matt Jeffs


Chester, United Kingdom
I tend to be more gifted in the wry and twisted. Thinking in straight lines is not for me so my solutions can veer towards the off-beat. In terms of my skill set, I discovered a knack for a hybrid cubist / cartoon style of illustrating and good intuition regarding colour theory. Though I have always been good at adapting and making use of the resources at my disposal so adapting to a new task is not normally a problem.
