Matty Matheson

posted in: Caricatures 0

Matty Matheson has a few eating establishments in Toronto.  Parts & Labour on Queen Street is the one I’m familiar with having eaten there. He also has a TV show on the Vice Channel, called Dead Set On Life. In the episode, ‘Life of Matty’, he tells you proudly that he was raised as a youth in Fort Erie, Ontario. It’s a border town that sits on Lake Erie right at the mouth of the Niagara River directly across from the city of Buffalo, New York.  I don’t hesitate to say that his restaurant is worth the visit and his TV show is a complete hoot.  As for my drawing of him when I do a caricature my preference is to try and push the image in only the most subtle ways without it turning into a straight up portrait.   …dh
