Matthieu Bessudo, a French illustrator, more commonly known as Mcbess uses black and white character based illustration along with hand done type to form complex compositions. Themes in his work typically portray music, retro cartoons, graffiti, and hidden elements that force the viewer to look thoroughly over the illustrations. Along with being an illustrator Mcbess is in the band, The Dead Pirates, and has created animation music videos for the band. Mcbess graduated from the French multimedia school, Supinfocom in 2006, and has since been in exhibitions in the United States, Europe, and Japan. I find the strong style Mcbess has to be highly intriguing and influential.
