Meet Our Vendor: Matthew Porter
Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Matthew. I’m a childrens book writer and illustrator. I currently have ten books published and hope to have many more to come! I also create a line of products from keychains to temporary tattoos featuring my original illustrations.
What’s the latest thing you’ve been working on?
I am working on a book about a baby panda who can’t find his mother and must meet up with other animals before he can find his way home to his mum. Who doesn’t love a baby panda right?
Any new exciting news you’d like to share with our readers?
I’m excited to be part of the Seattle made community. Over 350 local makers producing products right here in Seattle! It’s exciting to see how much innovation there is in this city!
What’s your favorite item that you sell?
Large prints of my originals. It’s great seeing a picture blown up to poster size and to know it will find a happy new home in a place of pride in someones home.
What’s the best experience you’ve ever had with one of your customers?
Someone has a tattoo of one of my images from the Count the Birdies board book. Pretty amazing to think my work will be part of their life forever!
