The 27 year-old artist Matt Caputo uses pen and ink to create witty, humorous illustrations that combine an array of disparate elements in unexpected ways. “In a way I’d say my work is comedic and more pleasant than anything else. It’s a lot of animals and lightheartedness. I guess I had a pretty wild imagination as a kid and spent as much time as I could drawing,” he says. “I love doing portraits and just coming up with random symmetrical designs. Throw something funny in there and all comes together. I just try not to take any of it too serious." Matt is inspired mostly by jokes, his friends, family, good movies, television, sandwiches, animals, pizza and music- stuff like that.
