It's been a whole year since I uploaded my website and it sorely needed an update of new work. As with any old piece of work you revisit I just couldn't resist tweeking things here and there.....so.....to a fanfare (of kazoos).....ladies and jellyspoons, may I humbly present www.matt-dawson.co.uk in it's 2008 look. If you remember the old site things aren't that different. I've just 'run the duster over things' here and there. Hope you like what you see.

This is illustration for the justonemorebook.com request for logos for their site redesign. It was a fun quick brief to do and it's nice to help out interesting sites when you can. Pop over and check out all of their childrens book reviews if that's your kinda thing! It doesn't really show up very well but that's scanned text from a novel (Mobey Dick in fact...) to create the texture on the book loving octopus/alien type thing's skin. I liked the idea of words from the books manifest in the characters look... not that visable as I said, but I know it's there at least :)
Just dawned on me I seem to have had quite a run on hour glass shaped heads, octopi and orange things... have to go in a new direction or I'll get boring!
PS. many thanks to onemorebook.com for posting my illustration and a link.
