Buy Me: Matthew Porter Art

September 30, 2010 at 9:00 am 1 comment

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with bananas…  To the point that my whole family started calling me monkey.  Then I got a sock monkey toy and that was it-  I have been monkey-obsessed ever since.  I love anything and everything with monkeys on it, so when I found this artist on Flickr, I was over the moon with joy.

Matthew Porter began as an art gallery owner with his wife, Andrea.  In 2010, they sold the gallery and today, he is a full time artist, illustrator and author based in Seattle.   He has published 5 childrens’ books and currently has a line of clothing in partnership with 10 Again Clothing Company available at Nordstrom.

His artwork is fun, colorful and visually interesting to people of all ages.  For more on his artwork and books, check out his website: and click here to see all the fun things available in his Etsy Shop!
