Interview with animator and illustrator Carlton Matthews

As part of our Digital Creatives series we talk to illustrator Carlton Matthews.

Illustrator Carlton Matthews uses digital technology to really bring his art to life. Carlton talks about his recent project ‘Social Suicide’, which – although unplanned – pay perfect homage to ‘the old way of life’ in a pre-Covid-19 world.

Digital media can sometimes be overlooked when considering artistic practice and creativity, and we wanted to change that!

With support from Arts Council England, and in partnership with Space Face Films, we sought out three digital creatives in the West Midlands to tell us about the work they're producing, the things that inspire them, and what advice they would give to young people who want to follow in their footsteps and enter the creative industry. 

We also spoke to artist Rosa Francesca and musician and dancer Benjamin Simon.
