Hello! I’m Matt Lyon and C86 showcases my work as a graphic artist. My current work explores line, colour, pattern and shape, often using reoccurring motifs and/or themes. I'm also keen on creating illustrative typography and anything wild and colourful. Aside from making use of traditional media, my digital artwork makes extensive use of both Illustrator and Photoshop. My designs have been published in books such as Victionary’s Fashion Wonderland and Laurence King’s Custom Kicks, and selected work has been exhibited in my hometown of London, as well as USA, Europe and the Far East. I’m a contributor of work to both You Work For Them and New Standard Clothing, and am also a member of the Black Rock Collective.
