Digital Creatives: Carlton Matthews, illustrator and animator

Voice speaks to animator and illustrator Carlton Matthews about how he brings 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. He also talks about where he draws inspiration from, and offers advice on how to get started – and what you need to do to keep going!
Carlton can be found on Instagram at on his website
