Today my guest is Matt Cosgrove, an Australian author and illustrator of children’s books. Some of Matt’s recent work includes the “Macca the Alpaca” series of books, along with other favourites like “Attack of the Giant Robot Zombie Mermaid”, which is part of the “Epic Fail Tales” series. In this episode we explore Matt’s love of art and design and his earliest memories of drawing and illustration. We trace Matt’s pathway through school, study and work as he reflects on a range of creative roles with Australian magazines, including illustrator and designer for K-Zone and Girlfriend leading to his role as Creative Director for fashion magazine Marie Claire. Matt shares his thoughts and opinions on the popularity of children’s books in a digital age, the profound value of reading and his eventual return to his first love: illustration. Links:
