Matthew Woodson

Matthew Woodson was born and raised in the hills of rural Southern Indiana. The son of two psychologists, Matthew started pouring out emotions through his work early on. His fascination with illustrating personal psychologies coupled with an unending love of natural history led him to The School of The Art Institute of Chicago where he graduated in early 2006.
Fresh out of art school Matthew was commissioned by Margeotes, Fertitta & Partners New York to illustrate the Perry Ellis Fall/Winter 2006 campaign. He has since gone on to bring his unique vision to countless editorial projects, dozens of album and book covers, as well as several major ad campaigns. All of which he creates with an intense eye for detail, a somber palette, and the ever present love of natural subjects and emotional environments.
Matthew still lives in Chicago, in a one-bedroom apartment furnished with taxidermy and mid-century furniture, where the majority of his time is spent between chain-smoking at his drafting table and falling asleep while reading.
International advertising clients include American Express, Nestlé, Perry Ellis, UNICEF, Godiva and Threadless.
Matthew’s illustrations have been featured in Bon Appetit, The Boston Globe, Business Week, Chicago Magazine, Complex, Digital Kitchen, ESPN Magazine, The Folio Society, Forbes Magazine, Glamour, The House Of Blues, Image Comics, LA Weekly, Learning Media, More, New York Magazine, NextBook, Penthouse, Radar, Randomhouse, The Royal Mail, Scholastic Books, TopShelf Comics, Type Records, Vim & Vigor and Wired.
