Interview: Matthew Glasby

What is your greatest achievement?
Seeing my first piece of work for sale in a gallery.

How would you describe your work to someone who hadn't seen it?
Bold, simple and (sometimes) a little creepy.

What one piece of advice would you give your 15 year old self?
Draw, draw, draw and then draw a little more. Also don't start drinking coffee.

When are you happiest?
The moment just after I have been totally consumed by a drawing and I take a step back, look at the page and there is something that looks good on it. 

What is the worst job you have ever had?
Definitely pot washing in a little pub in York. Cleaning huge pans of congealed gravy with pigs trotters welded to the bottom was pretty grim!

Who would play you in the movie of your life?
Zach Galifianakis - one day I will have a beard like his...

What is the greatest song of all time?
There is never a time when I would skip 'Son of a Preacher Man' or 'California Dreamin'

What do you dislike most about popular culture?
The majority of popular music! Also the fact is an audience for shows like The Only Way is Essex and Made in Chelsea.

What is the greatest invention of all time?
That would be the Interweb.

If you didn't do what do, what would you do?
Either make things out of wood or live with grizzly Bears, maybe both....
