Exhibiting at TCAF - Toronto Comic Arts Festival, 2021

Here are some promo videos for my two latest books, debuting at the online Toronto Comic Arts Festival, 2021 - running from May 8-15, plus a short tour of my work space!

This short promo video introduces my book "Graphic Influence" and explains how during lockdown I hunted through my bookshelves for the comics which shaped me, including Star Wars, Daredevil and Peanuts -- and how I used my impressions of modern and ancient architecture as a backdrop and put the whole thing in a poetic, surreal and continuous mixtape landscape.

This is a short promo video introduces my book "Ornette Speaks" and explains who Ornette Coleman was, how I got the inspiration to do a comic about him, and how my working approach was influenced by Ornette and free jazz.

This is a short promo video shows my workspace, with page 108 from my latest book PENGUIN DETECTIVE, "The Case of No Case" on the drawing board!
More work in progress can be seen on my Instagram.

If any of this work tickles your fancy, please feel free to check out my books on Amazon!

New Book! GRAPHIC INFLUENCE is available on Amazon Kindle as paperback and eBook!

Paranoia, isolation, sudden bursts of energy, bouncing loaves of bread... mirages of memory, stunning beauty and serene reflection offset random violence and bleak desolation. One wordless comic drawn entirely during COVID-19 explores what it's like to live in Pandemic times -- my latest book GRAPHIC INFLUENCE -- now available (as are most things) on Amazon!

Surprise! Brand new book! GRAPHIC INFLUENCE is now available on Amazon Kindle as both paperback and eBook!

Matthew Brown digs into the bookshelves of his lockdown library to deliver a delirious visual mix-tape.

An homage to the images which shaped the author—vigilantes, princesses, pixies, wanderers, assassins, superheroes, children, soldiers and animals fight, fly, fall and pursue their objectives in a looped landscape of modern and ancient architecture.

Inspired by the graphic works of comics masters Frank Miller, Moebius, Charles Schulz, Jack Kirby, Joe Schuster, Howard Chaykin, Chester Brown and others.

Also featuring architectural cameos from Ördek’s Necropolis in China, the Church of St. George in Ethiopia, the Malwiya Minaret of Samarra, Le Corbusier’s Ronchamp Cathedral, Mies van der Rohe’s Lake Shore Drive Apartments, Louis Kahn’s Dhaka National Assembly buildings and more!

ARCHITECTURE DEPARTMENT now available on Amazon Kindle!

 My Master's of Architecture thesis graphic novel ARCHITECTURE DEPARTMENT, which was originally available only in limited edition hardcover, is now available as affordable paperback or eBook from Amazon Kindle! Mixing Hindu and Buddhist philosophy with an examination of architecture as world-building, this graphic novel also targets architecture school, lust and the origin of the bagel.
