Arena Welcomes New Illustrator: Matthew Land

We are thrilled to welcome amazing new illustrative talent Matthew Land to the Arena family.

Matthew’s illustrations have a classic feel of the Golden Age, but he gives a fresh twist which immediately attracted us to his work. His obvious love and vast knowledge of children’s fiction reflects in his visual storytelling beautifully.  

His soft watercolour and detailed line work gives a timeless and magical quality to the worlds he creates and the characters which inhabit them.

We think his work will appeal to a broad range of publishing clients, from picture books to older fiction. Matthew’s aesthetic and love of pattern and design would also lend itself to a broader range of work. We’re excited about the prospect of exploring many different projects with him in the future. 

Matthew Land is represented by Arena Illustration.
