Matthew Porter – Release of Seattle Poster

For this poster I revitalized work I did for a gallery show over 7 years ago. The inital show was entitled  “The Cat that Ate the World”. It showcased paintings of an enormous robot cat eating and destroying landmarks throughout the world. This time it is a monkey!

Poster and original available through my site


Matthew Porter graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 1997. Soon after he hopped on a plane and landed in America where he's been ever since. He is co-owner of Bluebottle Art Gallery located in Capitol Hill, Seattle. Soon after opening Bluebottle Matthew hung his animal alphabet series up on the back wall coincidentally a children's book publisher wandered in and commented on how the series would make a great board book. Matthew jumped at the opportunity and now is fulfilling his lifelong dream of working full time as a children's book illustrator and writer. He has had three books and a wall calendar published with Simply Read Books of Vancouver, B.C. and has several more in the works.
