This is awesome stuff man, I'm happy to see a Victoria artist on here!
I live in Victoria seasonally I guess you could say, I go to UVIC.
you have a sweet style...it looks like you do most of your stuff on traditional surfaces now, but do you dabble in some graffiti now and then?
looks like that could maybe be the artistic ancestor of your art...lemme know if it's lurking around town.
Thanks for the love and comments! Sorry for being pretty vacant again. But again it's for a good reason... I just had Plethora 2 go down last night and like the first one it was a blast. Tons of great art, music and people.
Here's pics of my pieces from the show. People who've been following my thread will see some old sketches that I turned into finished pieces.

Hold Me Don't Touch Me
Lightning Bolt X
Remember That Night?
What the fuck up man?
AWEsome awesome shit in that update, got me drooling all over you baby. Gotta say that pic quality can be better but the paintings are just delicious.
Thanks guys! Bhanu, good to hear from you bro! Been too long since we talked. You're right about the quality of the photos... I'm horrible with a camera.
Here's some pics from the show...
(that's me in the hat)
These were amazing... the artist, Squantos, did a whole wall of jell fish.
This was the dj area with a video installation(before the show really started)
Such good times!
I am so glad you arent horrible with markers and brushes.I'm horrible with a camera.
But yeah you suck with cameras http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i2..._Matt/p2_1.jpg hahahah
Its nice to see you again, try coming to msn messenger, lets catch up there wat say?
nice stuff! like your graffiti style.
and post pls more pictures from the beauty in the last foto.^^
Dished - thanks man! Yep, everyone loved that one. I had about 5 offers on it that night and a couple since. But I sold it to the first person. Only doing the one print so it's worth more.
bhanu - thanks for pointing that out, bastard! haha. I never go on messenger anymore because I usually have facebook open and use that to talk to everyone. You on there??
Chelsea - that was the last piece I did right before the show. Had a pretty good response on it. I have someone that wants to buy it but she's moving tomorrow and doesn't want it to get ruined.
Nubb - haha, that's a crazy word! Thanks for stopping by!
zweiDee - thanks! haha, I take it you're talking about the girl in the dress? That's Willow(man all the fantasy peeps on here are going to like that) and I'm going to be working with her on doing some promotional material(business cards, tshirts, etc). The other girl is my friend and she's getting mad at her lame boyfriend for not having any money for drinks, haha.
So no update but I'm already working on the next show and doing some more work for music related projects. Will be updating soooooon
Thank you so much Clochette! I'm really trying to work girls back into my work. It's a fun challenge because I'm trying to make them sexy/cute but ugly and interesting at the same time.
I have a new blog that'll I'll be updating at least once a week. http://mattandres.blogspot.com/
My other one always had too many advertisers trying to post comments on it. Not sure if that happens with all blogs? It was a pain in the ass!
I have another show coming up on May 17th. I'm really excited about this one because it's just me and a photographer! Need to get so much done but I'm feeling up to the challenge. Also it's through different people than my last two shows so it's going to be a different crowd with different music.
And because this is supposed to be a sketchbook thread here's something I'm working on for a MC called GDP. Both him and his crew, Division East make incredible hip hop.
I had the Green Party show last Sunday and the joint was packed! I sold a few more pieces and had a completely new group of viewers. Things are slowly picking up for me in my city, Victoria. I've done three of these parties and although they've been successful I'm looking to do my next couple shows at a smaller venue with less booze but more art. I also really want to get back on my internet grind that I've been ignoring lately. Anyways, here's some pics... I had a lot of my older images printed out on nice large size canvases so if you've been following my work you'll see some that you've already seen.
looks like you guys had a blast!
haven't been here in a while and I'm glad to see you're stuff getting the well deserved attention at these shows.
the girl portrait is so good. and now get into updating more regularly again.
Fresh man just fresh. did you used to be into graffiti when you were younger?
