So impressive. Do you sell the artwork anywhere? Redbubble or the like?
One day I might sell prints, but I talked to a girl yesterday and I’m still on a high from that.
Sweet as, I spent my whole illustration lesson looking at your work, and doing none of my own haha. I adore the colour pallets used in your work. Keep up the good work.
Fantastic Artwork! , do you mind if I ask; do you use Photoshop or Illustrator to do your work?
!!!!!!!!! /spot on/
Hi Matthew. I sent you an email on Friday about possibly collaborating on a project we’ve got. Just checking you got it! Let me know what you think. Thanks, Mark
Hey you. Nice work! Reminds me of the books I used to have when I was a kid. Also a nice inspiration for some of my architectural renderings!
Hey matthew i stumbled across your work today and it is truly inspiring. I have so much i would want to ask you as im 19 and a illustrator myself. Where did you study?

Big fan from the Philippines. A friend of mine has a style similar to yours. His name is Dan Matutina. Good job, both of you! :)
a friendly thank you for occupying my day/evening with such beautiful work. i am not sure yet how to repay the privilege; do you have an opinion on scones and occasional less than witty banter as tender?
Such an impressive volume of work and inspiration! Love your work, I saw it on the magazine shelves and had to check it out— your swag continues in all ways, especially in the soggy cereal metaphors. Keep the crunch on.
Hi Matt!! wanted to drop a quick line to let you know that i enjoy coming to your site from time to time & check out your latest works! Love having each ofthem as my wallpaper on my desktop! Great work, again!

Any update on whether you’ve decided to sells prints?! You’d make a fortune.

love ur work :)
Got to say that I really admire your work. Had never seen anything from you before the other day, but I am so much into your style. Looking forward to following your work from now on. And just like anyone else, would I love to buy your prints, if you decide to sell.
great, great work. my day is better now that I’ve seen it.
Glad I found this. This is very retro/cool/cold/freezing. Building my site now……. screw dreamweaver! WordPress!
your stuff is just blazing a trail through my backyard!!! Totally love it
I love your work very much!
vintage and futurity :)

I’m truly amazed — I love this!
I like you. I like your work. Art Deco combined with the interior design of an upper class home in the 70′s. I imagine the spaces to be where Hugh Hefner would hangout with a few bunnies while smoking a pipe. Charming,
I love your work very much!
Like your sensitive approach to colour, the gradual colour choice, that gentleman atmosphere and the rays of sunlight. The haze brings a nice contrast to all the edges in your shapes.
Your work is impeccable. I love your sense of colour and gradient. More movie title screens please!
Just to say, I love everything you put out; and if you ever sell prints, you’ve already got a sale from me…
your work is very impressive and you have your own style which is amazing!!
No seriously… I’m going to ask again if you’re planning on selling prints. put me on that list if so
very nice.. love ur style.. u should rly start selling them.. i would buy one
Hi Matthew. I’m interested in working with you on a branding project. Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers.
It doesn’t look like you say much here in your about section, both in bio and replies to comments, but I’ll give it a go, do you happen to use SketchUp for your illustrations? It looks like it.
I’m in love with all this Matthew. I want prints =/
Incredible Illustrations, is is possible to buy some prints online?
I think your work is amazing. I’m your big fan! :)
Just came across your site. Love your style. Added to my favorites.
Amazing work… thanks for it
I have the same name as you. You are doing a good job keeping our reputation up with your cool art. I will try to return the favor.
What an amazing ilustrator you are…
Please oh please make prints. It would make me the happiest bunny in the world. (“Shut up and take my money!”)
Amazing work. I just love your style. Reminds me of my childhood:D.
Your work is absolutely beautiful. I can spend quite a long time looking at each one and I almost feel like I’m inside them when I look at them.

I’m not happy that I can’t buy prints from you. Not at all. Make it happen! Go!
wow……creating a new world…..superb……………..
Fellow illustrator here, green with envy! Incredible work; geometric shapes and muted color palettes are my jam!
Another one here willing to buy prints. Why don’t you just throw them on society6, while you think?

I love your work! Your technique is amazing!
May I ask how you make your Illustrations? Is it all Photoshop + handpainted textures?
I got the feeling that http://matthew-lyons.com/2009/08/blue-screen.html is partly a real painting!
I´m a fan!
Am finding much happiness in your work and transported to a place full of wonders,
thank you Mr Lyons
Got a new fan!
Can’t wait to see some of these moving. (or is there a part of this website i missed?)
also, yes, prints would be nice.
Hi Matt, I wonder if you’ve done anything with animation/animated your illustration. I just think that’d be a cool idea and I would love to see some of your work animated! Thank you for being inspiring!
Love your vector landscapes! They are truly beautiful and illustrative and give a nice futuristic, yet nostalgic vibe that i cant shake. Keep it up!
Hey my buddy Marcus tweeted your portfolio,
Your work is amazing, the architecture reminds me of a james bond movie. (:
I was so happy, until i saw your work. Sick.
