Spotlight: Matte Stephens

I recently stumbled across the artwork of Matte Stephens, a Portland-based artist. I knew after two seconds I was in love with his style, storytelling and humor. His work speaks to an audience appreciative of Charley Harper and Mary Blair-inspired vintage, playful characters that you hope will walk off of the page at any second, and a subtle palette that in other hands might fall short of intriguing but here is vivid and vibrant. So do yourself a favor by checking out his work—I promise it’ll cure any winter blues you might be having. Unless you’re in Australia in which case I’m so mad that you have summer weather.
