Matthew (Salt) Postell is a published Illustrator and Graphic Designer. While in school, Matthew was chosen out of thousands of his peers to attend Warner Brothers Animation classes, for young artists. Later, Matthew enrolled at the Art Institute of Atlanta, where he studied computer animation and design. Matthew has designed hundreds of logos, book covers, and illustrations for his graphic design clients, in addition to illustrating several children's books. Introducing new people to the creative process is one of Matthew's favorite things to do. Matthew's lessons on art are infused with a deep sense of spirituality. He reminds his students that "messing up" is a part of the journey and that, similar to God's power of restoration, art can be restored.
