Hey, Just a heads up but I've set up an Etsy store where I'll be selling my screen prints and comics. Right now there's some multicoloured squid prints, the Yeti Vs. Octopus image from a while back, a yeti comic and my Unlikely Tales sci-fi anthology comic from late last year. You can find it all here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MattWalkden?ref=si_shop Cheers, - Matt

Hey, Not written anything here in a while, Thought Bubble came and went - I finished my comic, sold a whole bunch of screen prints and the whole thing was a lot of fun! The push to get everything ready kind of wiped me out, that and a new job and just wanting some time to unwind at the end of the year meant I didn't get a whole lot done until the new year. It's felt like a slow start to this year - I've been working on a bunch of little things but nothing major, I think I might still be warming up from taking time off over Christmas. You can check out what I have been doing on my blog but I should have a bunch of new stuff (screen printing,

I finally got off my arse and drew some comics (check out the gallery) - a quick 6 page thing to ease me back into the worlds second most under-achieving creative medium. Why am I doing this? I've got a table booked at the Thought Bubble comics convention in Leeds in November and will look a bit daft if I'm sat behind an empty table for a weekend. I already have my yeti book but one book isn't enough! I've had a couple of ideas for short comic stories floating round my head for the past few years that I'm going to put together in an anthology called "Unlikely Tales". In the meantime, I guess I'll plug my blogs again: http://mattwalkden.blo

Didn't know you were on here ! You've covered so many different styles, i don't think I've seen a gallery as varied, I usually associate your art with the bears with the claws that find themselves in all kinds of dangerous situations.

I love the pixel art, do you do it in Photoshop ?
Hey! Yeah, I post stuff in different places almost randomly so a lot of it doesn't end up on rllmuk.

The Pixel art is all Photoshop, I can't work without layers and a million undo states, it's probably not healthy!

Matt, I love your scenic roughs. I'm very curious about your technique. 
Hey Avarius,

Thanks! It's all photoshop with default brushes, nothing fancy in there. There's a breakdown of some of the earlier ones here with the original photos for reference here:
