Artist Profile: Matthew Lord

Meet Matthew Lord, an illustrator and fine artist who graduated from the University of Kansas. Inspired to create a visual narrative, Lord references comic books, science fiction, and urban legends. He asks himself absurd questions, such as "Are people who report Sasquatch sightings really witnessing that one big Muppet, (Sweet-ums), traipsing through the woods?", in order to instill wonder in the viewer, and hopefully inspire them to ask their own ridiculous questions. 

His gauche and ink drawings, "Celebration #1, #2, and #3," are on display in the gallery as a part of "99: Locally Brewed" which ends this week.
