Artist of the Day: Matt Furie

One of my personal favorite artist of these twisted times we live, colorful and funny brings back classical childhood characters like: Big bird,Cookie monster,Kermit,Skeletor & many more original and creative  drawings

Matt Furie was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1979. He graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio in 2001. Matt is a leo, he enjoys long walks in the park, bubble baths, and an occasional glass of wine. He currently lives in San Francisco.

Matt Furie’s drawings come from a mix of child-like enchantment and momentary adult situations. His self proclaimed “children’s book illustrations for adults” combines traditional and modern mark-making for his ripe, cartoon-inspired characters. Last year he was awarded best Visual Artist by the San Francisco Bay Guardian in the 20th annual Goldie awards.

His comic series “Boy’s Club” is published by Buenaventura Press.
