This is Matt Johnson calling.

Do your worst  

Employed and freelance visual artist, TV writer, and video editor. I tell stories, however possible.

This is where I keep inspiration, and evidence of my own perspiration. No pit stains, just art.

This is a painting I recently finished for a friend’s new nursery. They’re Four Swords fans to the point that they even named their son Lincoln with plans to call him Link! I think it’s adorable.
Anyway, this is what they wanted, something not too silly but not too scary, and I like the idea of seeing how they would spend their downtime in different ways. 

I hope you like it, and as always there’s more at www.artofmattjohnson.com or www.facebook.com/artofmattjohnson
