*Feature* Matt Goodall at long dog art

I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Matt Goodall and his beautiful family recently.


At his session I learned that Matt is a fellow artist, comic enthusiast and we both attended/worked Phoenix Comicon.  :)  Shortly after his session I checked out his work and discovered he is an amazing watercolor and comic book artist!  And he offers custom hand painted portraits!!!  I inquired about having a watercolor portrait done of my son.  I adore watercolor and thought it would be a lovely piece to hang on the wall.  Below is the image I provided to Matt and his amazing painting.   



I love this painting so much that I wanted to share Matt's work.  He is available to do original commissioned drawings and paintings.  If you are looking for a unique special gift for someone for the holidays , look no further!  This would be perfect!!!  Also a great gift for an anniversary, birthday or Valentine's Day gift! ;)


A little bit about Matt Goodall, the artist behind this painting of my son:  

Matt 
works in traditional mediums as well as dabbling in computer graphics.  He received his BFA from Central Michigan University and is the artist and co creator of Sonic Youth, a superhero comedy that features a humorous look at parenthood and the suburban lifestyle for Spazdog Press.  In November 2011 Matt supplied the pencils for the story Shoplifters of the World Unite, which again paired him with Sonic Youth writer and Spazdog Press founder Shawn Demumbrum and also with Jason Pederson's inks.  The story appears in the compilation Unite and Take Over: Stories Inspired by the Songs of the Smith's.  Matt will also be supplying all of the art for the story Oscillate Wildly, written by Chris Murrin and Andy Jewett, which will appear in Unite and Take Over volume II released in 2012.

You can view more of Matt's great work on his blog, long dog art  or visit his etsy site,  millie and mason.  If you really love his work, head over to his facebook page and like it too!
