Watercolor Illustration Prints by Matt Shanks

The Victorians! 1837 to 1901 Watercolor Art Print | Matt Shanks

I am loving these seriously cute and clever watercolor illustrations by Melbourne, Australia based artist, Matt Shanks. The adorable prints feature fictional characters (Captain Ahab), historical figures (Galileo & Sir Isaac Newton, part of the science series), and original characters that each have a clever and extremely enjoyable backstory. Check out all of Matt’s available watercolor prints right here, and take a peek at some of my favorites below.
