Matthew Martin

Book for an event

Matthew Martin was born in Broken Hill, New South Wales. His cartoons and illustrations have been published in newspapers, magazines and books in Australia, the USA and the UK. He's created animations, posters and drawings for Mambo T-shirts, illustrated books for children and for adults and even drawn ducks in wet cement on the footpath.

He lives in Sydney with his girlfriend and their son, right next door to Cameron Williams, author of the picture book The Christmas Peg. So Matthew knows Cameron's family and he thought about the kids when he was drawing the illustrations.
