Matthew Woodson was born in the woods sometime in the early 80s. He graduated from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago in early 2006 with a focus in Natural History Illustration. Directly out of school Matthew was commissioned by Margeotes, Fertitta & Partners New York to illustrate the Perry Ellis Fall/Winter 2006 campaign, and has been working as a fulltime freelance illustrator ever since. He still lives and works in Chicago with a crippled deer/dinosaur/dog and more houseplants than one person can reasonably tend to. Chances are that he will probably make it back to the woods one of these days.
