MATTHEW BLAKE

I have always felt like I was born with the ability to draw. Spurred on by my grade school art teacher, Mr. O’Neill, I carried this vocation to be a professional artist with me seriously up until my junior year in college. I abandoned my BFA pursuits at the University of Missouri–Columbia to get into what I thought would be a more lucrative pursuit of Graphic Design/Art Direction in the Advert industry.

I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, and I am glad I chose the path I did. I am grateful for a consistent career in the world of Advertising, Marketing and Graphic Design. It has given me opportunities to free my mind to explore and absorb knowledge, from the clients I have serviced to all the categories of information from anywhere the world wide web can take me.

“Art’s task is to Save the Soul of Mankind,
and that anything less is a dithering while Rome burns.
Because if the Artist,
who are self-selected to be able to journey into the other…
if the Artist cannot find the way, then the Way cannot be Found.”
