My illustration of the Brighton panorama was shortlisted, and went on to win the Create in Brighton imagery competition, run by Frank PR, Drink In Brighton and sponsored by Tiger Beer. It was a complete surprise after seeing the high standard of work, especially in photography and illustration. A massive thanks to everyone who voted for the work on Facebook, and to the judges Lomokev, Lawrence Zeegen and Sarah Arnett.

"Although there were a lot of high quality entries into the Create In Brighton competition, Matt's submission really stood because he'd created something specially for the theme of the competition. Clearly a hard working individual who does not suffer from a lack of ideas."

"Beautifully crafted and expertly visualised - Matt's piece encapsulates a Brighton look and feel with Far East aesthetic to create a slightly surreal vision of the city by the sea. Great stuff."
