C86 | Matt Lyons

Over the weekend I was retweeted by a fellow named Matt Lyons who works under the name of C86, so curious me did some digging and found out that he was a really great artist and illustrator. Matt currently lives and works in London, England, creating these really densely beautiful drawings.

His work tends to be comprised of these really fantastic, colorful shapes that he combines into these really ornate pieces. His color choices are always really interesting as well, bordering on a more muted palate, even though they’re still really vibrant feeling. He also makes some great t-shirt designs and seems to love budgies.
