The story of Good and Evil. In this digital collage illustration, Matt took inspiration from the novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding, which explored the concept of moral evil within the human condition. Matt combines collage and drawing techniques to build imagery that tackles a range of topics, most notably of late, perceptions of good and evil and the fine line between them.
