Took these a few weeks ago right after this crazy span of rain storms we got. Taking photos while driving is really difficult.
Hello everyone, as I may have said before, I decided to make little postcard/photography sets available for purchase in my store.
For the next week, these will be $15 per set, free shipping, which is 50% off the original price.
Each set consists of three photographs following a similar theme, printed on 5 x 7 inch archival photo paper, hand bound together by a strip of recycled paper, and shipped to you in a bend-proof envelope.
My year has been made
I know it’s only March, but I feel as if nothing could possibly top what just happened.
My friend, Claire, who has been the recipient of multiple prints of my artwork, just sent me the dissertation she’s done on my art, focusing on my piece, Insomnia. It was seriously one of the most flattering things I’ve ever read. Spending four years in art school, constantly writing papers on different art styles and artists, I never in a million years thought I’d ever be the subject of one of these papers. She is amazing, and I’m so thankful to have come into contact with her.
Time to keep this year going right. Got a lot of exciting things coming up. Just gonna list a few because I’m seriously so stoked right now:
- Continuing to work with Gxldslvgs and the rest of the Gravewave crew
- Getting to work with my boys overseas in the incredible band Fallacies
- Finally getting this children’s book commission finished up
- And just keep pushing forward and making myself known, in any way I can.
I can’t thank all of you enough. To anyone who’s purchased a print of mine, reblogged anything I’ve posted, or just saying they enjoy my work, it’s all what has gotten me here today. And I’m gonna keep doing it. Sometimes, I know I can get really down, and it shows, but I’m going to stay positive and committed, and everything will be as it should be. You all mean the world to me. Thank you.
*Sorry this was so long*
It snowed again. Chicago is buried under a blanket of powder. The end is near (not really). But because everyone is probably running around like chickens with their heads cut off to keep everything under control, I thought I’d give y’all a little coupon.

Cool. Stay safe, anyone who’s been hit by this storm.
After a year of my old domain, I’ve decided to step it up a bit and redesign the layout and format of my online portfolio. This new page is significantly more streamlined, more organized, and even has a blog section. So go take a look at it!
To all of you who have business cards of mine, the old domain name is no longer valid. The new domain name is www.matthew-kocanda.com
Thank you for all of your support over the past few years.
