    Do cartoons, movies, and pop culture from the 80's give you a warm feeling? Do you drop words like "rad" when you see a hot-colored t-shirt design? Well take a look inside the mind of Matthew Skiff who's work is influenced by a nostalgia for that era. He's come a long way since doodling in front of the TV as a kid. Matthew is trained in graphic design at the university level and is starting to mix his graphic and illustration skills more in his professional work. He regularly creates illustrations for bands and makes professional t-shirt designs. He works in vector, masterfully using a Wacom tablet.
