Australian Illustrator Matt Huynh self-publishes his own comics. The 2009 Creative Sydney Festival named him one of the most innovative contributors to Sydney’s culture and he was awarded the inaugural Design NSW Travelling Scholarship to pursue a worldwide professional development trip to train and work in residence under his greatest influences and inspirations. He has also worked for several notable clients and agencies. He currently has a new series of prints and custom portfolios to be released late October that can be pre-ordered now.
