Matthew Scott is an illustrator based in the UK with a talent for just about everything. His site, Divine Paper House, is so aptly named to house the work he has done for children’s books, editorials, advertising and his personal work. Be sure to have a look at his editorial work- it brings new meaning to the world of advertising, which in my opinion is almost undeserving of such talent. Matthew graduated in 2008 from Kingston University with honors and his awards include “Best New Blood” in the 2008 D&AD Awards and first place in the 2008 student category of the Cheltenham Illustration Awards for his book titled, “The Diver.”
Here is what Matthew had to say about a few pieces of his work:
Single page from my first book the diver which won first place in the cheltenham illustration awards 2008, the book tells the tale of a deep sea divers love of mermaids.
