    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! :)

  25. karmin says:

    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?

  26. Andy says:

    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.

  27. Clementine says:

    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.

    Hey Matthew

    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.

  32. Reimo says:

    simply Brilliant!

  33. raafi says:

    great, great work. my day is better now that I’ve seen it.

  34. Kevin Lane says:

  37. Margot says:

    I’m truly amazed — I love this!

  38. Rusty says:

    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,

  39. Murat says:

    Hi !

    I love your work very much!

  40. brit-inga says:

    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.

  41. Hilary says:

    Your work is impeccable. I love your sense of colour and gradient. More movie title screens please!

  42. Joe says:

    Just to say, I love everything you put out; and if you ever sell prints, you’ve already got a sale from me…

  43. loreen says:

    your work is very impressive and you have your own style which is amazing!!

  44. Kathy Andersen says:

    No seriously… I’m going to ask again if you’re planning on selling prints. put me on that list if so

  45. max says:

  46. Joel Blair says:

    Hi Matthew. I’m interested in working with you on a branding project. Please get in touch at hello@detraform.com. Cheers.

  47. Rory says:

    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.

  48. Anderson says:

    I’m in love with all this Matthew. I want prints =/

  49. Leeroy says:

    Incredible Illustrations, is is possible to buy some prints online?

  50. Anionnn says:

  54. reyes says:

  55. Roger says:

    Please oh please make prints. It would make me the happiest bunny in the world. (“Shut up and take my money!”)

  56. Itai says:

    Inspirational work!!

  57. Nicolaes says:

    Amazing work. I just love your style. Reminds me of my childhood:D.

  58. 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.

  61. sara says:

    great job! I love your style.

  62. I’m not happy that I can’t buy prints from you. Not at all. Make it happen! Go!

  63. somu says:

    wow……creating a new world…..superb……………..

  64. Bridget says:

    Fellow illustrator here, green with envy! Incredible work; geometric shapes and muted color palettes are my jam!

  65. djjeck says:

    Another one here willing to buy prints. Why don’t you just throw them on society6, while you think?

    Want… prints… now..

  68. Jj says:

    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!

    Thank you,

    I´m a fan!

  69. Nadia says:

    Am finding much happiness in your work and transported to a place full of wonders,
    thank you Mr Lyons

  70. 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.

  71. Siwei Song says:

    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!


  72. Максим says:

    очень круто

  73. Hannes says:

    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!

  74. Lewi Hussey says:

    Hey my buddy Marcus tweeted your portfolio,
    Your work is amazing, the architecture reminds me of a james bond movie. (:

  75. david rocha says:

    I was so happy, until i saw your work. Sick.

  76. Kyle Richardson says:

    Learn some new techniques. Your work is stale and boring. Try experimenting with more than just 6 different colors.. Horrible.
