Matthew Craven was born in Great Grimsby's Maternity Hospital on 30th October 1983 at 15:46. He studied at Hereford School, excelling in art and design and winning many young persons art contests including his beloved Blue Peter badges.
After his A-Levels Matthew studied at Grimsby College of Art & Design and a few spent years making short films, travelling around the UK and teaching and performing Circus Arts with the Earthbound Misfits.
But today his performance takes place on paper. Matthew's attentive illustrations work through a variety of mediums that lace together succinct direction and meaningful presentation.
Matthew currently studies illustration at Norwich University College of the Arts and is available for freelance via his portfolio website crav.co.uk.
